This book covered all aspects of teenage pregnancy: trends, consequences, solutions, but for my part of the research I focused mainly on the trends.  For the most part, I could only use the book as a specific reference to pregnancy statistics in the seventies.  I think this can be one of the hardest aspects for conducting research on something that has changed so drastically in the past decade.  Teenage pregnancy has changed so much in recent years, that the trends described in this source don’t even apply.  Chapter ten of the book, “Some Speculations on the Future of Marriage and Fertility” was interesting, mainly because it refers to a time period that we are currently living in.
