This Research Brief draws on data from the 9-month Resident Father Survey of the nationally representative 2001 Early Childhood Longitudinal Study – Birth Cohort (ECLS-B) to present information on what men report about their pregnancy intentions and their prenatal involvement. We also examine the effects of these intentions and behaviors on men’s involvement with very young children following birth.
