A census of 53 adolescent females was conducted over a period of time beginning July 15, 2001 and ending March 5, 2002. Each subject was surveyed by using an interview with 66 items. The resources examined in this census were means of transportation and the social support structure before the female became an adolescent. The census found that 72 percent (N=53) of the adolescent females interviewed do not have a car, and 79 percent do not use public transportation. The census also found that 77 percent of the adolescent females interviewed do depend on their family/friends for transportation, and eighty-five percent do not walk to most of the places that they want to go. The census found that 100 percent (N=52) of the adolescent females interviewed stated that the most important person in their life when they were 10 years old was a family member. The census also found that the gender of the most important person of these adolescent females, when they were ten years old, was 79 percent female and 21 percent male.
