Overview

In 1996, The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction hosted an international meeting to address the issues of survey research into sexual behavior, driven predominantly by concern over HIV and AIDS and the need to establish the frequency of behaviors which might facilitate spread of the virus. The participants included representatives from most of the recent large scale surveys in the United States and Europe, and others with a wide range of research experience and methodological expertise. These are the papers from that conference.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
These 22 contributions from the April 1996 meeting hosted by the Kinsey Institute at Indiana U. present international perspectives on debates about methodological differences in surveys of sexual behavior, and in particular, the difficulties with generalizing methods across contrasting cultures. The authors discuss key issues relating to both qualitative and quantitative methods, including adaptations of method for groups, the use of survey data to measure change in behavior over time, and participation bias.
