A study involving more than 2,000 girls aged 12-17 years was arranged. Scientists conducted the first survey of teenagers in 2001. Then they became aware of almost 100 cases of pregnant girls.

Recently, a second poll was arranged, and it turned out that number of teenage pregnancies doubled. Further questioning revealed that majority of pregnant girls enjoyed watching youth films and television serials.
