1982 San Jose, California Study of Adolescent Perinatal
Risk Reduction Behavior
The purpose of this study was to develop a model of adolescent perinatal risk behavior and examine the relationship between at- risk pregnancy behavior of adolescents and perinatal outcomes. The file contains data collected from 93 women under age 18 who had just given birth in one of five San Jose area hospitals in July and August of 1982. The data were collected by means of a structured, close-ended survey instrument. The file includes information on substance use and abuse, pregnancy and labor outcomes, social support, the use of services, contraceptive use, previous pregnancies, education, respondents' orientation toward the future, and relationship to the father of the child.
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.
