The onset of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s spurred the fielding of major national surveys of patterns of sexual behavior. In contrast to the pioneering work of Alfred Kinsey earlier in the 20th century, these surveys used probability sampling techniques to characterize (with known margins of sampling error) the behavior of national populations — rather than purposively recruited or accidental collections of volunteers.  

This seminar will discuss the methods and findings of major surveys of sexual behavior conducted in the United States and in the United Kingdom (UK).  The results of these surveys are reported in: 

Laumann E, Gagnon J, Michael R, Michaels S. Social Organization of Sexuality. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1994. [LAUMANN]

Johnson A, Wadsworth J, Wellings K, Field J. Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles.  London: Blackwell, 1994. [JOHNSON]

Journal articles from 2000 and 2010  NATSAL. [NATSAL]

Journal articles from recent rounds of the National Survey of Family Growth [NSFG]
