Adolescent pregnancy: Factors and prevention
by Hekimoglu, Tayfun, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 48; 1585952
Abstract (Summary)

In the United States the high rate of adolescent pregnancy is a cause for a concern. Previous research indicates that infants born to adolescent parents have negative social outcomes and are prone to repeat the cycle. For this reason, it is necessary and important to lower the adolescent pregnancy rates. The study examines factors that influence adolescent pregnancy and respondents' age when the first child was born (i.e., teenage pregnancy), consumption of alcohol, and sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing. The 2005 CHIS adult data set was used for the analysis; the sample used included only women less than 20 years of age at the time of interview (N = 390). There were no statistically significant findings, probably due to the small sample size.
