Methodology Notes: 

    Females are considered to have used a condom at first intercourse if they reported they were sexually experienced and that their partner used a condom at their first intercourse. Sexually experienced refers to females aged 15 to 19 years who had ever had intercourse.

Changes Between HP2010 and HP2020: 
The objective has been revised to expand the age range covered by the objective from 15-17 year olds to 15-19 year olds. The objective has also been revised to focus on all sexually active adolescents, rather than only unmarried adolescents.

Revision History

Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.

Description of Changes Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch: 
In 2012, the original baseline was revised from 66.9 to 68.0 due to a change in the baseline year from 2006-2008 to 2006-2010. The target was adjusted from 73.6 to 74.8 to reflect the revised baseline using the original target-setting method. In 2019, the objective wording was updated from sexually active to sexually experienced to more accurately reflect the data.
