Sociology Professors discuss scope of research findings with The Journal's Steve Kendall

Professor and Chair of Sociology Susan Brown and Distinguished Research Professor Wendy Manning appeared with Steve Kendall on WBGUTV's The Journal to discuss their roles as co-directors of the National Center for Family & Marriage Research and to revivew the past decade of research findings.

An initial goal of the NCFMR was to go in from a demographic standpoint and document key family changes that are taking place in America today, such as marriage, cohabitation, divorce, stepfamilies, and remarriage. A decade later, the NCFMR is at the forefront of that work providing up to the minute statistics, allowing opportunities for both graduate and undergraduate students "to get their feet wet in that research."

An article by Drs. Karen Guzzo and Sarah Hayford (OSU) was recently published in the Maternal and Child Health Journal. The study finds that attitudes and knowledge about contraception and reproduction learned as a teen have long-term consequences.

Maternal and Child Health Journal

According to Guzzo, “These findings support comprehensive sex education during adolescence and ongoing efforts in adulthood as a mechanism to improve contraceptive use, potentially reducing high levels of unintended childbearing in the U.S.”
