The purpose of the project was to gain a better understanding of the status of teen males, with particular emphasis on African Americans. The South Carolina Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy (SC Campaign) identified studies on risk factors for teen fatherhood and other related risk factors and requested data from the South Carolina Office of Research and Statistics (ORS). A cohort of over 84,000 15 to18-year old males enrolled in South Carolina public school during the 2009-2010 school year was analyzed by ORS. (Author abstract modified)
