Study Finds Black Youth Most At Risk For STDs



Fifteen percent of young adults in the U.S. between the ages of 18 and 26 have had a sexually transmitted disease (STD) within the past year, but nearly three-quarters of these young adults with an STD did not believe that they were at risk, according to a new Child Trends brief. 
Sexually Transmitted Diseases among Young Adults: Prevalence, Perceived Risk, and Risk-Taking Behaviors

analyzes recently released data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health to provide estimates on the prevalence of and attitudes toward STDs among young adults, as well as on the behaviors that may put them at risk of contracting an STD.

 

 

 

 

Among the findings:  

 

 

  • STD prevalence differs by gender and race/ethnicity, with higher rates among women and blacks. 
  • Young adults who have an STD often aren't aware of it--most didn't think they had any chance of having an STD, few experienced any symptoms, and only one in four said they would call in to get their test results.
  • Many young adults, including those who didn't test positive for an STD, were engaging in sexual behaviors that could place them at risk of getting an STD.
