This report contains the findings from a survey of over 38,000 youth in grades 7, 9, 11, and the first year of college or university, designed to obtain a cross-sectional perspective of the development of knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors related to Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Also included in the sample were youth who had recently dropped out of full-time attendance at school and those who spent most of their time on the streets of large cities. The first of this report's eight chapters provides an introduction to the study. Chapter II describes the young people's characteristics. Chapter III focuses on what respondents know about AIDS and other STDs and the accuracy of their knowledge. Chapter IV reviews from whom and where young people have learned about sex, birth control, STDs, and AIDS. Chapter V examines young people's attitudes toward people with AIDS or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and homosexuals and homosexuality, and the influence of self-esteem, mental health, and relationships with friends and parents on their attitudes. Chapter VI documents the sexual behaviors of young people and considers factors that influence these behaviors. A description of what was learned through face-to-face interviews with street youth across Canada is included in chapter VII. The final chapter identifies the young people at greatest risk and explores the implications of the main findings. Educational initiatives and social interventions are suggested. Numerous statistical figures supplement the text. (NB)
