What are the causes and effects among teenagers in San Juan Hill, Santa Cruz Old Road, San Juan?
Reasons for selecting area, and topic of research in the community of Santa Cruz Old Road, San Juan: There are many teenagers who are pregnant. In light of the fact that education of a young female maybe disrupted by pregnancy. I am interested in finding out if the teenagers who are pregnant now were born to a teenage mother and maybe continuing the cycle of teenage pregnancy. Also to an extent belonging to a particular family type pre-disposes a young girl to teenage pregnancy.
