Community Effects on Youth Sexual Activity.
Baumer, Eric P.; South, Scott J.
Journal of Marriage and Family, v63 n2 p540-54 May 2001
Longitudinal data were used from National Survey of Children to examine the impact of community socioeconomic status on four dimensions of adolescent premarital sexual activity: time of first intercourse; frequency of intercourse; number of different sex partners; and likelihood of engaging in unprotected sex. Significant positive effects of community socioeconomic disadvantage were found on all but timing of first intercourse. (JDM)
