National Survey of Adolescent Males, New Cohort,
The 1995 National Survey of Adolescent Males (NSAM) is a nationally representative survey of teenage men, designed to increase knowledge and understanding of the determinants of adolescent male contraceptive use, sexual activity and related risk behaviors. Respondents age 15 to 19 were surveyed from February through November of 1995. The most sensitive information was gathered by a Self Administered Questionnaire (SAQ). A total of 890 variables and 1,729 cases are included in this data set. Data from a previous NSAM cohort, first interviewed in 1988 and re-interviewed in 1990-91, are also available from Sociometrics Data Archive on Adolescent Pregnancy and Pregnancy Prevention as Data Set number K1-K2. Data from the third wave (1995) of the original NSAM cohort will be made available to Sociometrics some time in 1998.
