Do City Kids Have Fewer Problems?

At a lunch meeting this past week I was struck by the comments of one of my colleagues at work who grew up in a smaller town in Ontario.  He said that in his experience and from conversations with people who grew up as kids in Toronto, the kids in Toronto got into less trouble and have fewer problems than the kids who grew up in smaller towns and communities.   Other colleagues seated around the table seemed to agree.  I have never previously considered this issue.  Does my colleagues’ observation have validity?
