Adolescent Sexual Behavior, Pregnancy, and Parenting: Research through the 1980s

Abstract

As the 1990s begin, research and policy interest in adolescent sexual behavior, pregnancy, and parenting continues at a high level, both because these behaviors are critical in the process of family formation and because their precocious timing often makes them problematic for the individual and for society. Research from the 1980s is summarized on the topics of adolescent sexual activity, contraception, abortion, marriage, adoption, and childrearing. Research about the antecedents of adolescent sexual and contraceptive behavior is emphasized because they are the key risk factors in adolescent pregnancy. Advances in data and methods are discussed, and research gaps are highlighted.
