Multiple Sexual Partnering and HIV Risks Among Low Income Heterosexual Black Men (ICPSR 35847)

Principal Investigator(s): Dunlap, Eloise Emma, National Development and Research Institutes, Inc


The project employs omnibus ethnographic methodology to investigate sexual behavior which commonly occurs among inner-city, low income heterosexual black males who have multiple sex partners. This involves conducting four focus groups during each of two years (N=96). Ethnographers write field notes based on observations of subjects in households and community settings. Focal subjects (N=125) with multiple sex partners are interviewed in depth and re-interviewed.
