Who's Buying Information

American Sexual Behavior: Demographics of Sexual Activity, Fertility, and Childbearing is a ground-breaking title that brings you the facts about reproductive health and family formation practices in the United States.

To create this compendium, the New Strategist editors sifted through reams of data from the National Survey of Family Growth, the National Vital Statistics System, the Census Bureau, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the 2000 Census. The 348 tables they individually compiled and created (adding, where appropriate, percent distribution, percent change, and other useful and thought-provoking calculations) reveal how Americans cope with sexuality, fertility, marriage, and childbirth.

American Sexual Behavior is divided into 11 chapters: Sexual Initiation, Teenage Sexual Activity, Adult Sexual Activity, Sexual Orientation, AIDS and STDs, Cohabitation and Marriage, Fertility and Infertility, Contraception, Pregnancy, Births, and Caring for Children. Most of the tables show how reproductive and family formation behaviors vary by such characteristics as age, marital status, number of children, race, education, region, metropolitan status, and even religion.

American Sexual Behavior includes 348 sourced tables, table of contents, list of tables, list of illustrations, bibliography, glossary, and index.
