Abstract: The 1992 National Health and Social Life Survey (NHSLS) was conducted in order to provide useful and comprehensive information on the sexual behavior of the general population of the United States. The NHSLS questionnaire covers many domains of sexual behavior, including sexual experience measures such as numbers of sex partners in given time periods, frequency of particular practices, and timing of various sexual events, as well as measures of mental states such as attitudes toward premarital sex, the appeal of particular techniques such as oral sex, and levels of satisfaction with particular sexual relationships. Demographic measures include race, education, political and religious affiliation, income, and occupation. The data set contains information from 3432 respondents on 1604 variables. Note a second copy of these data were received from ICPSR in May, 1996. At this time no evaluation was made to determine if these data are identical to the data cataloged as Edition 1, Version 1.
