Social Context and Adolescent Behavior: The Impact of Community on the Transition to Sexual Activity.
Brewster, Karin L.; And Others
Social Forces, v71 n3 p713-40 Mar 1993

Social disintegration, socioeconomic status, and availability of employment opportunities for women emerged as particularly important influences. (SV)
