Technical Report

This report from Child Trends discusses trends of sexually active teens. About one-third of high students report they are sexually active. This overall percentage has not changed greatly since 1991. An exception is a significant decrease among black students, where the proportion who are sexually active declined from 59 percent in 1991 to 33 percent in 2015. (Author abstract modified)
