Predictors of Early Initiation of Sexual Intercourse among High-Risk Adolescents.
French, Doran C.; Dishion, Thomas J.
Journal of Early Adolescence, v23 n3 p295-315 Aug 2003
Assessed the characteristics that predicted the timing of first sexual intercourse in high-risk adolescents. Employed event history analyses and defined predictor variables using multimethod and multiagent assessments. Found that precocious sexual initiative can be understood using models of the etiology of other problem behavior, and that deviant-peer involvement is a salient dimension of this trajectory. (Author)
