A Multimonial Logit Analysis of Teenage Fertility and High School Completion.
Ribar, David C.
Economics of Education Review, v12 n2 p153-64 1993
Uses data from the 1979 National Longitudinal Survey of Youth to examine economic, institutional, and sociological antecedents of high school completion and adolescent fertility. Welfare generosity appears to have a significant positive effect on adolescent childbearing. Other important determinants of teenage parenthood and educational attainment are family planning clinic availability, family background, religiousness, physical maturity, race, and ethnicity. (MLH)
