This National Institute of Justice Special Report addresses the question of why backlogs of DNA evidence awaiting testing persist even after the federal government has provided hundreds of millions of dollars to eliminate them. Answering this question requires understanding both what a backlog is and how backlogs can be reduced; this report provides that understanding. (NCJ 230183)

This report presents national estimates of sexual activity, contraceptive use, and births among males and females 15-19 years of age in the United States in 2006-2008 from the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG).
As previous data showed, having first sex at a younger age within the teen years is associated with more negative circumstances and consequences. Females who were younger at first sex are more likely to report it was unwanted; both females and males who were younger at first sex are more likely to accumulate higher numbers of sexual partners and have more partners within a recent time frame.
