This article focuses on the condom beliefs of low income, urban African American and Hispanic youth living in the Midwest.
The condom beliefs under investigation were derived from prior research with members of this population and through consultation with African American and Hispanic youth and service providers.
Significant gender, ethnic, and acculturation differences were found among beliefs related to frequency of condom use in the past year (p <.05).
These differences indicated that women, African American respondents, and Hispanic respondents high in acculturation tended to have more neutral or more positive views about condoms than other types of respondents.
