Description/Abstract

This paper aims to define risky sexual behaviour in the UK with respect to the two most common bacterial sexually transmitted diseases: chlamydia and gonorrhoea. Using data from the National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles II, a nationally representative survey of sexual behaviour in Britain, this study aims to identify patterns of behaviours associated with increased disease risk by applying latent class techniques. A 3-class solution was obtained, splitting the sample into individuals with no sexual partners in the last year (8%), one sexual partner in the last year (71%) and the risky group, who had two or more sexual partners in the last year (21%). The paper then explores the prevalence of risky behaviour by ethnic group, age group and marital status.
