Barber, Nigel
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, v32 n3 p259-67 May 2001
Used United Nations cross-national data to examine the relationship between low sex ratio, marital opportunity, and teen pregnancy. Geographical region, per capita gross national product, marital rate, and urban and rural status were used as control variables in analyses that utilized sex ratios to predict teen births. Overall, early childbearing was partly a response to poor marital opportunity. (SM)
