abstract
Recent data shows that Sexually Transmitted Disease rates in young females are the highest in recent history. One in four females are infected with some form of STD. The social factors that contribute to high rates of STD infections in females between the ages of 18-24 are: age, race, substance abuse, social economic status and level of education. Our research will prove that there is a correlation between our dependent variable (higher STD rates) and our independent variables (age, race, substance abuse, social economic status, and level of education). Current attitudes of young females are that sexually transmitted diseases are not a valid concern, as most teens define sex as intercourse only, when other types of intimate behavior including oral sex can spread some infections. STDs in women can lead to infertility and cervical cancer as well as other acute and serious conditions. In female’s screenings including vaccinations and other preventive strategies for sexually active women are among the highest public health priorities. High STD rates among young women are clear signs that our government and other health based initiatives must continue developing ways to reach those most at risk with increased prevention and safer sex campaigns. Data gathered from #6647 in the National Health and Social Life in the U.S. will be used in order to test our research question.
