Journal of Marriage and the Family, v52 n1 p171-81 Feb 1990
Used 2-year prospective study of 2,102 young adolescents to assess relationship between family structure (intact, one-parent, stepparent) and whether cigarettes, alcohol, marijuana, and sexual intercourse had ever been tried. Logistic regression results showed significantly higher levels of ever-usage for children of nonintact families. (Author/NB)
