Emerging Answers 2007
Emerging Answers 2007 is a review of hundreds of studies of teen sexual behaviors and programs designed to reduce sexual risk-taking behavior. It summarizes teen pregnancy and STD rates and the sexual behavior of young people. It identifies the particular behaviors that directly contribute to teen pregnancy or sexually transmitted disease. It summarizes more than 400 studies of the risk and protective factors affecting these sexual behaviors and the effectiveness of about 115 programs on sexual behavior. Because some programs are effective at changing behaviors and others are not, it lists the particular programs that have the strongest evidence for impact on behavior and describes the 17 characteristics of these programs. Finally, it describes three promising strategies that communities can use to select and implement effective programs.
