Project TALENT: Consequences of Adolescent Childbearing
for the Young Parents' Future Life, 1960-1974
This study investigated the educational, occupational, and family-related consequences of adolescent pregnancy and childbearing for young women and men who were in the ninth grade in the U.S. in 1960. The study utilized data for a subset of 7,656 individuals (1,883 blacks and 5,773 whites) who had participated in a large-scale educational research study called Project TALENT. Data available include demographic background, cognitive characteristics, and social-psychological characteristics as measured in ninth grade; educational, marital, and childbearing histories through age 29; and plans and expectations at age 29 regarding future childbearing.
Note for users of DAAPPP Data Sets #01-B1
DAAPPP data sets 01 through B1 are comprised of a User's Guide, SPSS syntax files (*.SPS or *.SPX) and raw data files only. Most of these datasets contain SPSS syntax files that use Job Control Language (JCL) from 1980s versions of SPSS-X. Because the syntax is old, the syntax files require editing to conform to the current syntax standards used by SPSS/Windows or SPSS/Unix. If you require technical assistance in using or editing these syntax files, please contact Sociometrics' Data Support Group at 800.846.3475 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
