Toledo Adolescent Relationships Study (TARS) Series

The Toledo Adolescent Relationships Study (TARS) Series explores the relationship qualities and the subjective meanings that motivate adolescent behavior. More specifically, this series seeks to examine the nature and meaning of adolescent relationship experiences (e.g. with family, peers, and dating partners) in an effort to discover how experiences associated with age, gender, race, and ethnicity influence the meaning of dating relationships. The series further investigates the relative impact of dating partners and peers on sexual behavior and contraceptive practices, as well as involvement in other problem behaviors that can contribute independently to sexual risk-taking. The longitudinal design of the Toledo Adolescent Relationship Study includes a schedule of follow-up interviews occurring one, three, and five years after the initial interview.
