1980-1985 University of Utah Adolescent Family
Records of clinic-intake interviews conducted in the University of Utah's adolescent pregnancy program over the period 1980-1985 provided data for the study. Respondents were mostly middle-class Caucasian adolescent mothers and their partners living in Utah. Data include reactions to the pregnancy; changes in relationships due to the pregnancy; mother and father's history of drinking, smoking, and substance use; history of physical and sexual maltreatment; educational status; employment status; religion; sources of emotional support; contraceptive use; and anxieties involving parent-hood. The file may be merged with DAAPPP Data Set No. C1, "1981-1986 University of Utah Adolescent Pregnancy Evaluation and Outcome Study," and/or DAAPPP Data Set No. C2, "1981-1986 University of Utah Teen Mother and Child Program Background Data."
