Appendix B: Further Quantitative Findings

This appendix contains detailed quantitative data that complement findings already presented. The data, which are organized by subject matter, are not intended to stand on their own: the chapter of reference is noted after each subject heading.


1. Condom Use and Conjugal Status (Chapter 6)

Table B1 shows condom use (or non-use) at last sexual encounter by conjugal status for pilot questionnaire respondents. Interestingly, involved non-users had been involved with their partners for much longer than involved users had. Six of the twelve users were not involved at all. Four of the six involved users had been in their relationships for less than five years; two had been involved for five to nine years; none had been involved for over ten years. In contrast, seven of the fifteen involved non- users had been involved for more than five years; five of these seven -- one-third of all fifteen -- had been involved for over ten years.


2. Women's Income (Chapter 6)

Forty-four women provided explicit income information on the final questionnaire. The average total monthly income of condom users and non-users was essentially identical ($598.89 vs. $598.79). Nonetheless, when the averages from differing income sources are viewed in isolation, distinctions between the groups can be seen (see Table B2). (No significant differences in age, education, or number of children existed between the groups. Because of this, and because of the small sample size, such variables were not controlled for in statistical calculations. The figures given are merely descriptive.)

Users brought in smaller monthly paychecks than non-users. The average user's monthly pay was $147.80; the average non-user's was $252.93.
