Published: 18.12.2017

Although this previous research has shown a clear and often bidirectional link between education and sexual debut, important gaps and significant methodological deficiencies are present in the literature. Factors associated with sexual abstinence among adolescents in four sub-Saharan African countries.

Yet achieving this goal often conflicts with other key transitions to adulthood, such as becoming sexually active, marrying, having children, and finding employment. Men and women are considered to have dropped out if they are no longer enrolled in school and did not complete at least nine months of Form 4. In Model 3 we assess the effects of sexual partners only.

This precision was important in their study because nearly one-third of participants who left school became sexually active within one year. Although roughly one-third of both boys and girls in our sample had found a partner they wished to marry, none of our married respondents remained in school after marriage. Some respondents may deliberately revise their life histories to conform to social norms or personal ideals, thus introducing social desirability bias into our findings.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the girls, their families and those working to bring them home safely. Thus, for these analyses, the end of observation refers to the age of sexual debut if the respondent is sexually active, or the age at the time of the survey if the respondent never had sex. One advantage of this modeling method is that it allows us to treat time as a continuous variable, which is more appropriate than discrete time methods for events measured in months.
