First-Year Impacts of Four Title V, Section 510 Abstinence Education Programs

Publication Date
Jun 13, 2005

This report presents findings on the short-term impacts of a select group of Title V Section 510 abstinence programs on measures such as service receipt and intermediate attitudinal outcomes for participants. The analysis of first-year impacts is based on an experimental study sample of youth that were randomly assigned to either a program group that received abstinence education or a control group that received the services usually available in the absence of the abstinence programs. A future report will examine the longer-term impacts of the programs on behavioral outcomes.
