1983-1984 University of Utah Adolescent Pregnancy
Evaluation and Outcome Study
The program being evaluated is the Teen Mother and Child Program (TMCP) of the University of Utah, an outpatient hospital-based multidisciplinary health and education program which also contains a client home-visit component for pregnant and parenting teens. It is being compared with traditional, more fragmented services provided to a matched sample of teens in the community through enrollment in the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program. The evaluation consists of (1) demographic, prenatal and pregnancy information; (2) a 4-week follow-up; (3) a 6-month follow- up; (4) a set of 9-month Bayley scores; (5) a 12-month follow-up; (6) an 18-month follow-up; (7) a 26-month follow- up; and (8) a set of 26-month Bayley scores. Data include maternal educational and occupational information, maternal child development, parenting knowledge and behavior, maternal and infant health, maternal psychosocial status, infant mental and motor development, infant language development, and infant health status. There are 260 cases and 610 variables. The Data Set may be linked to respondents included in DAAPPP Data Set No. C2, "1981-1986 University of Utah Teen Mother and Child Program Background Data," and/or DAAPPP Data Set No. C3, "1980-1985 University of Utah Adolescent Family Study." These latter studies were conducted by the same principal investigator and all stem from the Utah Teen Mother and Child Program (TMCP).
