5th National survey of Australian secondary students and sexual health (2013)

A national survey of the sexual health of Australian secondary students has been carried out approximately every five years since 1992, each survey wave being funded by the Australian Government Department of Health. The 2013 survey, conducted by the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society at LaTrobe University, involved over 2000 students from the Government, Catholic and Independent school systems and from every jurisdiction in Australia. Students were asked about their STI knowledge; sexual behaviour, beliefs and perceptions; desire to have children; drinking and drug taking; use of the internet, technology and social media; and sexuality and relationship education.
