The Demography of Sexual Behavior


Tom W. Smith, Ph.D., National Opinion Research, University of Chicago, gives an overview of sexual behavior in the United States, including premarital and adolescent sexuality and the impact of AIDS. Seminar participants attempt to make social sense of the research, placing an emphasis on the public health consequences and societal trends of sexual behavior. This publication was produced as part of an ongoing seminar series, jointly sponsored by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research (AEI), on “Sexuality and American Social Policy.” The series is co-sponsored by the Alan Guttmacher Institute, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and The Population Council.
