Resumen

SOTO MARTINEZ, Oscar et al. Pregnancy in adolescence and sociodemographic factors in Guantánamo. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2004, vol.20, n.1. ISSN 0864-2125.

A case-control study was conducted aimed at identifying the risk factors of pregnancy in adolescence. All the patients aged 12-19 (37) from "Emilio Daudinot" Polyclinic that got pregnant in 1998 and 37 adolescents (controls) who have never been pregnant with the same age and from the same area were studied. Every adolescent answered a questionnaire. Ddata were processed in SPSS 9.0 and they were shown in tables and figures where the summary measures of the analytical level were used. The association significance was obtained by Mantell-Haenszel X2 test, in which 95 % was prefixed as the confidence interval. The association degree was determined in the significant variables by the odds ratio. The number of marriages (OR 6,48 [2,39;15,56]), the occupation (OR 6,13 [2,05;14,23]), and the marital status (OR 2,13 [1,26;3,86]) proved to be significant in a bivariated way.

Palabras clave : Pregnancy; adolescence; risk factors.
