The National Longtitudinal Survey of Youth provides annual data from 8,000 Americans who were aged 12 to 16 when the research began in 1997. To date, results indicate that 34% of students have had sexual intercourse by Grade 9, rising to 60% by Grade 12. An analysis of those teenagers who reported having sex for the first time during 2000 indicates that 56% of them did so at their own family home or the home of their partner's family. A further 12% initiated themselves at a friend's house, 9% in a home belonging to one of the teenagers themselves, 4% in a vehicle, 3% outdoors and 3% in a hotel or motel. Ten percent cited other locations. Seventy percent of sexual initiations which took place in family homes reportedly occurred in the evening or night, suggesting that many parents do not supervise their teens carefully.
