Early mortality risk will have a larger impact on adolescent fertility rates than current mortality risk. (4004)


Total effects were calculated for both early and current extrinsic risk variables. Early extrinsic risk had much stronger total effects (0.641-0.669) than current extrinsic risk (0.182-0.235).
