'I love sex. I like to make money': What sex workers really want
Since health has multiple dimensions, several measures are needed to capture variations by gender and the use of multiple measures can help us better understand the underlying explanations for gender differences. Although life expectancy and mortality are the most extreme measures of health, relative to most other health metrics they are more amenable to accurate measurement, and are more comparable across countries and over time. We start with a review of the existing literature on sex differences in survival followed by a review of the empirical evidence on gender differences in objective and subjective health. Data on objective health are collected through physical performance tests or cognitive tests, or are based on medical diagnoses that are either recoded in administrative databases or collected through self-reports of diagnoses made by physicians. Subjective health measures strongly depend on individual perceptions that can be modified by contextual factors socioeconomic, cultural, gender roles, etc.
This study describes the sexual behavior among students who participated in the National Adolescent School-based Health Survey PeNSE and investigates whether social inequalities, the use of psychoactive substances and the dissemination of information on sexual and reproductive health in school are associated with differences in behavior. The response variable was the sexual behavior described in three categories never had sexual intercourse, had protected sexual intercourse, had unprotected sexual intercourse. The explanatory variables were grouped into socio- demographic characteristics, substance use and information on sexual and reproductive health in school. Variables associated with the conduct and unprotected sex were identified through multinomial logistic regression, using "never had sexual intercourse" as a reference. Over nearly a quarter of the adolescents have had sexual intercourse in life, being more frequent among boys.
