Family Configuration in Relation to the Sexual Behavior of Female Adolescents.
Miller, Brent C.; Bingham, C. Raymond
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v51 n2 p499-506 May 1989
This study, based on a national probability sample of 15- to 19-year-old women, showed that adolescent women raised by a single parent were more likely to have nonmarital sexual intercourse than were young women from intact marriages. However, this effect was diminished by controlling for age and race, social class, and religion. (TE)
