The Effect of Geographic Mobility on Premarital Sex.
Stack, Steven
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v56 n1 p204-08 Feb 1994
Examined influence of migration on sexual behavior. Data from national probability sample of single females, ages 15-19 (n=1,287) revealed that moving was positively related to premarital sex. Migration may lower control through such mechanisms as weakening community bonds, decreasing supply and demand of parental supervision, and increasing loneliness and arousal. (Author/NB)
