A study that explores the relationship between sexual risk behaviors and academic achievement.
Data presented below from the 2009 National Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) show a negative association between sexual risk behaviors and academic achievement after controlling for sex, race/ethnicity, and grade level. This means that students with higher grades are less likely to engage in sexual risk behaviors than their classmates with lower grades, and students who do not engage in sexual risk behaviors receive higher grades than their classmates who do engage in sexual risk behaviors. These associations do not prove causation. Further research is needed to determine whether low grades lead to sexual risk behaviors, sexual risk behaviors lead to low grades, or some other factors lead to both of these problems.
