Putting on the Brakes?


An analysis of data gathered from the National Survey of Family Growth, conducted in 2002, shows that teenagers are becoming less likely to engage in sexual relationships. The data showed the proportion of 15- to 19-year-old boys and girls who reported having had sex dropped from 55% and 49%, respectively, in 1995 to 46% and 45% in 2002. And those who were having sex were more likely to use contraception in 2002 than in 1995, according to the analysis, which was published in the Journal of Adolescent Health.
