Heaton, Tim B.; Jacobson, Cardell K.
Journal of Family Issues, v15 n2 p290-308 Jun 1994
Explored degree to which adolescent living arrangement, mother's educational level, religion, region of country, area of residency, birth cohort, and year of survey can account for racial difference in timing of initiation of sexual activity, first marriage, first birth, and divorce. Variables examined did not provide satisfactory explanation of differences between black and white family formation and dissolution. (Author/NB)
