Education Level, Liberal Attitudes, and Sexual Behavior: A Reinterpretation.
Hager, Mark A.
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v42 n4 p400-05 Dec 1996
Responds to Krull's conclusions (1994) that higher educational attainment is indirectly related to sexual promiscuity through more liberal attitudes toward premarital sex. Criticizes Krull's omission of certain variables, recoding of variables, and assumption of a one-way causal relationship between sexual attitudes and behaviors. Reanalysis with LISREL path models indicates a negative effect of education on promiscuity. (SV)
