This study was designed to examine perceptions of type, source, and amount of social support reported by pregnant and/or parenting (PP) and nonpregnant, nonparenting (NPNP) adolescents. Greater support generally was reported by NPNP than by PP adolescents. The groups did not differ with respect to their perceptions of types of support reported on either the Inventory of Socially Supportive Behaviors (ISSB) or the Arizona Social Support Interview Schedule (ASSIS). PP adolescents reported more support from teachers on the ASSIS than did NPNP adolescents. NPNP adolescents reported more support from best friends and sisters than did the PP group.
