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.

Method of investigation In order to collect data from the survey. I have decided to use printed questionnaires. The questionnaire is a tool for collecting data and it has a number of advantages. It requires little time to be completed and it guarantees confidentiality since respondents are not required to attach their names.

    The fourth source by the Office Of Adolescent Health has a strong and detailed overview of teen pregnancy and childbearing. I found this source through University of Alabama Scout search engine and the audience is the general public. The source includes statistics from 2013 that 273,000 babies were born in the US from females ages 15-19. The text also mentions the sad reality that comes along with teenage pregnancy such as, mother and teen less likely to finish school, more likely to rely on public assistance, more likely to live in poverty as adults, and more likely to have children who has poorer education, behavioral, and health outcomes throughout their lives rather than a child born into older parents that are prepared for a child. Along with addressing the issues of teen pregnancy, the source also touches on strategies and approaches to prevent unwanted teen pregnancies such as the contraceptive method I talk about in my paper. This information adds to my paper because it demonstrates the problems with teen pregnancy and the steps the US can take to lower the teenage pregnancy rates.…
