ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the design and execution of a national survey of men (NSM), aged between 20-39, conducted in the U.S. to study their sexual behavior. The study was conducted under a grant from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. The NSM selected two separate samples of the general population and asked questions related to sexual background, current sexual and non sexual partners, knowledge, and risk taking behavior. Data was collected and processed at the Institute for Survey Research at Temple University, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The final sample was weighted to reflect differential sampling rates and five components of the final weight assigned to each male respondent. Nonresponse bias and sampling errors were also taken into account.
