Sexual intercourse and recourse to contraception during early adolescence in France and England and Wales

Documents de travail

247, 2018, 43 pages

Using data from the international Health Behaviour in School-aged Children study, this article examines the sociodemographic factors associated with sexual intercourse and recourse to contraception in early adolescence in France and England and Wales. Logistic regressions report that these factors are subject to both gender and seing differences. As a result, girls in England and Wales are more likely to experience pregnancy in early adolescence than their French counterparts. ese differing behaviours help to explain the higher pregnancy rates in early adolescence observed in England and Wales compared to France.
