Abstract

This Research Brief highlights an innovative type of life history calendar — the Relationship History Calendar — that was developed by PSTC Associate Nancy Luke, Associate Professor of Sociology, and colleagues to collect more accurate and thorough sexual behavior data from young people, and compares the quality of data it collected with conventional face-to-face interview approaches such as those used in the Demographic and Health Surveys.
