HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS FACTSHEET:

In assessing the sexual health of U.S. teens, it may be useful to compare them to their peers in Canada and the United Kingdom, two nations whose history and culture are, to an extent, similar to that of the United States. The data show that, although U.S. teens typically initiate sex at around the same age compared to their Canadian and U.K. peers, U.S. teens have higher birth rates and HIV prevalence rates than teens in the other two countries.
