A partnership is deduced to be ongoing if the participant was married/cohabiting and described their partnership as married/cohabiting, or, if the participant was not cohabiting at interview and they described their partnership as non-cohabiting and they reported one or more occasions of sex in the month before interview.
We used STATA version 8.0 to calculate descriptive statistics to summarize characteristics of all heterosexual partnerships in the past year, and used logistic regression to consider how these characteristics are associated with condom use, taking account of the stratification, clustering and weighting of the sample.
We describe all heterosexual partnerships in the past year in terms of partnership type, age and geographical mixing and how these characteristics relate to condom use.
Methods Probability sample survey of 11 161 men and women aged 16–44 resident in Britain, 1999–2001.
However, to date, limited evidence exists due to a paucity of population probability surveys, so inference is often made from studies using convenience sampling and/or studies that focus on specific population groups, which results in estimates that are not generalizable to the population as a whole.
Computer-assisted self-interviews asked respondents about partner numbers and detailed questions about their three most recent partnerships.
We weight these data to represent partnerships for which detailed questions were not asked to present estimates for the population of partnerships.
Of course, the more recent the time frame of interest, the larger the proportion of participants who will be invited to report detailed data for all their partnerships.
Yet, even with a relatively recent focus, such as in the past year, there will be some participants who report many partners, for whom detailed partnership data will be collected only for a proportion of all their partnerships.
Trained interviewers conducted face-to-face interviews in respondents’ homes, followed by a computer-assisted self-interview (‘CASI’).
