Social Influences on the Sexual Behavior of Youth
at Risk for HIV Exposure, 1992
The study Social Influences on the Sexual Behavior of Youth at Risk for HIV Exposure: 1992 was conducted to aid in the design of HIV prevention-related interventions in poor urban minority communities. Investigators interviewed 300 African-American children aged 9-15 living in six public housing developments in a large U.S. city. A computerized data collection instrument was used to elicit information on several themes, including social support, parental supervision, perceived risk exposure, and self-reported sexual behavior. This data set includes information on 94 variables.
