  • * The first column includes all men in the study sample. The second column excludes males who reported impregnating a teenage girl after age 19; the third column excludes males who reported impregnating a teenage girl before age 20; the fourth column excludes girls whose age was reported to be ≤17 years; and the fifth column excludes girls whose age was reported to be 18 to 19 years.

  • The exposures include: childhood physical abuse, sexual abuse, or exposure to maternal battery. The graded relationship between the number of exposures and the risk of impregnating a teenage girl is statistically significant for every column (P < .001).

  • ORs adjusted for age, race, and educational attainment.
