ABSTRACT
The article focuses on studies by students of the Income Security for Poor Children from Woodrow Wilson School at the Princeton University in New Jersey. An evaluation of teen pregnancy prevention models including Peer Model, Teacher Model and Agent Model reports that the models have the potential to reduce non-marital births. Research on identifying Hispanic families to qualify for child support recommends disaggregating the population based on nationality to target specific populations.
