Jelili, M.O., Akindele, O.A., Ojo Akintayo


One of the basic social problems affecting the life and future development of the youths these days is the issue of teenage pregnancy. In this study, we relate the problem with factors of home environment using data from household surveys. With correlation and other relationship-depicting statistical analyses, the study observes that incidence of teenage pregnancy is related to residential density, parenthood, heterogeneity of the housing environment, peer group pressures, pornographic videos, among others. The study calls on all stakeholders to be alive to their responsibility, and ensure that a good living and social environment that discourages illicit behaviours is maintained.
