This work is going to investigate the importance of preventing methods, especially on the role of sex education in decreasing the rates of risky behavior among adolescence that may result in the decrease of transmission of HIV and Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) and on the increased attention to the sexual health. The data from National Survey of Family Growth were used to address this gap in research in order to understand, firstly, if there any significant difference in risky sexual behavior among teenagers based on the type of sex education received, and, secondly, is there an increase in careful attitude to health. The stratified weighted analysis was conducted to account for the complex survey design of the NSFG. In order to compare proportions and to test relationships between categorical variables, Pearson’s chi-2 test was used. Weighted univariate logistic regression was used to investigate the association of type of formal sex education with measures of sexual risk and health attitude

Weighted multivariate logistic regression was used to investigate the association of type of formal sex education with measures of sexual risk (ever engaging in vaginal sex, ever being diagnosed with STDs) and health attitude (ever been tested for HIV, not for blood donation, usage of condom at last sexual intercourse) adjusted by social, demographic and economic factors (respondent age, household income per year, race, intactness of family).
