Abstract

“El embarazo adolescente ha acaparado recientemente la atención de analistas y comentaristas políticos. Las repercusiones sociales del embarazo adolescente justifican, por sí solas y más allá de cualquier connotación moral, el sentido de alarma. La literatura internacional sobre el tema muestra, por ejemplo, que las mujeres que quedan embarazadas y dan a luz durante su adolescencia tienen una menor probabilidad de completar sus estudios secundarios, de participar en la fuerza de trabajo y de casarse y permanecer casadas. Este artículo estudia la incidencia y las repercusiones del embarazo juvenil en Colombia con base en las cifras recopiladas por la Tercera Encuesta Nacional de Demografía y Salud. Primero, se examinan los principales factores de riesgo asociados con la incidencia del embarazo juvenil; luego se estudia la magnitud y el origen de las diferencias en las tasas de embarazo juvenil entre estratos de nivel socioeconómico; y, por último, se estudian los efectos del embarazo juvenil sobre las tasas de deserción escolar."
