Abstract

Research on concurrent sexual partnerships has been constrained by inconsistent and inaccurate measurements of these partnerships. Recently, a UNAIDS working group recommended a method based on sexual partner histories to improve the measurement of concurrency. Using recent survey data for young adults living in Cape Town, South Africa, we found that this method could result in underestimates of concurrency due to respondents' failure to report additional sexual partners.
