Issues and Problems Related to the Research on Teenage Fathers: A Critical Analysis.
Robinson, Bryan E.; Barret, Robert L.
Journal of School Health, v52 n10 p596-600 Dec 1982
Research on teenage pregnancies has usually neglected young fathers. Most studies ignore fathers entirely, or use data confused or confounded by biased reporting techniques. Retrospective and post hoc analyses often produce inaccurate conclusions, and subject samples often are unrepresentative. A closer examination of adolescent fathers is necessary. (Authors/PP)
