Teenagers' Perceived and Actual Probabilities of Pregnancy.
Namerow, Pearila Brickner; And Others
Adolescence, v22 n86 p474-85 Sum 1987
Explored adolescent females' (N=425) actual and perceived probabilities of pregnancy. Subjects estimated their likelihood of becoming pregnant the last time they had intercourse, and indicated the dates of last intercourse and last menstrual period. Found that the distributions of perceived probability of pregnancy were nearly identical for both those who were and were not at actual risk. (Author/NB)
