Estudio Actitudes, Valoraciones y Expectativas de los Adolescentes Colombianos, 1988

This study was a joint project of the Population Development Program at Cornell University and the Universidad Externado de Colombia (Bogota) as part of a series of joint projects in Peru, Colombia, and China by the Population Development Program at Cornell University. Funding was provided by the Rockerfeller Foundation. For purposes of sample selection as well as field work, the country was divided into the five geographical/cultural areas accepted by the national statistics institute (DANE). A total of 375 schools in 64 different locations throughout the country was thus included in the sample. The survey covers many socio-economic areas, including attitudes toward marriage, family life, and contraceptive use.
