Influence of Neighbourhood Collective Efficacy on Adolescent Sexual Behaviour: Variation by Gender and Activity Participation
Child: care, health and development 2010 Sep; 36(5): 646-54
Adolescent sexual engagement is a good proxy measure of health risks in the USA owing to a higher prevalence of risky sexual behaviours among sexually active adolescents and to associated undesirable health outcomes. Neighbourhood collective efficacy is considered a potential social process that may prevent or delay early sexual engagement among adolescents. This study examined whether neighbourhood collective efficacy is associated with adolescent lifetime sexual intercourse and whether the association differs by gender, out-of-school activity participation and race/ethnicity.
