Traduction en anglais : Blood doners as a sentinel population to monitor sexually transmitted diseases. Results of a sociodemographic investigation and survey of sexual behavior.
A multipurpose survey in a representative sample of the german population was conducted to obtain sociodemographic data together with data on blood donation history and acceptance of HIV antibody tests.
A self-administered questionnaire was used to gather information on sexual behaviour.
This questionnaire was completed by 62.2 ; of the participants between 18 and 64 years of age.
Comparison between donors and nondonors shows that donors are typically members of the more « socially active » groups: they are younger, gainfully employed, and have attained higher educational levels.
The analysis of the data on sexual behaviour reveals that donors are on the average sexually more active than nondonors.
