Psychosocial Variables Associated with Teenage Pregnancy.

Adolescence, v30 n118 p277-89 Sum 1995
Sexually active girls (n=64) at a clinic were surveyed. When those with a history of pregnancy were compared with never-pregnant girls, 2 significant differences were found: girls with pregnancy history had first intercourse at the mean age of 15 instead of 16, and scored higher on the "Powerful Other" Health Locus of Control subscale, a measure of belief in control by others.
