The Fog Zone

This research is based on a nationally representative survey of 1,800 unmarried young adults age 18-29 and is the first of its kind to focus in depth on the attitudes and behavior of unmarried young adults—both men and women—regarding pregnancy planning, contraception, and related issues. This publication provides helpful background about older teens and young adults to college faculty who work with many students in this age range.
