1979-1981 Philadelphia Study of Psych. Factors
Associated with Adolescent Fertility Regulation-Males
The purpose of this study was to obtain very extensive information from adolescent males on a number of factors that were posited as being related to adolescent fertility regulation, including: parental communication regarding contraception, sex, and pregnancy; exposure to teenage pregnancy; and attitudes toward various contraceptives. Males' sexual and contraceptive experience comprised the major dependent variables of interest. The sample consisted of 77 black adolescent males aged 14 to 18 years who were enrolled in the Philadelphia Collaborative Perinatal Project.
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.
