ABSTRACT
The article focuses on issues related to the postponement of a study of adult sexual behavior by the U.S. National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. The move follows the cancellation of a nationally representative panel study of adolescent sexual and contraceptive behavior by Louis Sullivan, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services. Despite the fact that the project received favorable peer reviews, the study has been postponed. The third study in the row, which has also been cancelled focused on adult sexual behavior.
