This study examines the use of condoms due to the risk of AIDS in the general population of Sweden during 1986-1989.
The study is based on annual mail surveys (1986-1989) of random population samples aged 16-44 years-4000 individuals in each sample.
The response rate was 71%. The study indicates that the use of condoms increased significantly during the first years of the study period, particularly among 18-24-year-olds.
Roughly the same tendency was observed regarding the perception of personal risk related to HIV infection.
In 1988 a positive connection was established between condom use and personal risk perception.
