Alexander, Cheryl S.; And Others
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v22 n5 p455-71 Oct 1993
Inconsistencies in adolescents' self-reports of sexual behavior were studied for 758 rural adolescents (eighth-grade students in rural Maryland) who completed surveys over 3 years. Consistency rates fluctuate depending on the measure of sexual behavior, the racial/gender subgroup, age, and prior sexual experience, but the majority present consistent reports. (SLD)
