  • Description:
    A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention analysis of national data on HIV- and STD-related risk behaviors among U.S. high school students finds that few sexually experienced students have ever been tested for HIV and that other trends in sexual risk behaviors vary by race/ethnicity and gender.

    The data come from CDC’s National Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS), a nationally representative biennial survey of public and private school students in grades 9–12. Since 1991, YRBS has monitored a wide range of health risk behaviors among high school students on the national, state, and local levels, including behaviors that put young people at risk for HIV and other STDs.
