Evaluation Review, v25 n6 p605-18 Dec 2001
Examined characteristics of parents who consented, refused consent, or did not respond to an active consent request for their adolescent children to participate in a study of lifestyle behaviors. Nonresponding parents from the sample of 2,968 high school students were more similar to consenting parents than to refusing parents, a finding that supports the use of passive consent procedures in adolescent research.
