Drug Use and Other Determinants of Premarital Pregnancy and Its Outcome: A Dynamic Analysis of Competing Life Events.
Yamaguchi, Kazuo; Kandel, Denise
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v49 n2 p257-70 May 1987
Examined determinants of occurrence and outcomes of premarital pregnancy. Found cohabitation, being black, poor grades and high peer activity in high school, use of illicit drugs other than marijuana and dropping out to be associated with increased risk of premarital pregnancy. Premarital births were overrepresented among blacks, as were abortions among illicit drug users. (Author/NB)
