Examines prospectively the characteristics contributing to adolescent pregnancy in a pregnant and comparison group of adolescents. Adolescent pregnancy in Blacks was predicted by approval of delaying a family and pursuing a career, aspirations of working, and lower educational expectations. Higher educational wishes, lower educational expectations, desiring more children, and having sex younger predicted pregnancy in White adolescents. (Contains 55 references and 3 tables.) (Author/GCP)
