Some interesting points:

  • 14-24 year olds are the most likely to use condoms ~40-70% (vs. the ~5-25% of adults age 25-70+ that use condoms).
  • 14-24 year olds are about as likley to use a condom with relationship partners as casual partners.
  • Girls under 15 years old are the most likely to have had more than 4 partners in the last year. (vs. girls & boys <15-19 years old).

*People who use a condom the first time are more likely to use them in the future.
