    Why exactly this behavioral shift is happening is still a bit of mystery, though scientists have reached for explanations ranging from the positive ( less lead poisoning ) to the negative ( the rise of smartphones killing teen romance). The CDC authors, for their part, note that the . has experienced profound shifts in technology, the use of social media by kids, and how sex ed and teen pregnancy prevention programs have been run and funded since 2005 (for example, the decline of Bush-era abstinence programs , which actually led to more kids having sex).

    To  reduce sexual risk behaviors and related health problems among youth, schools and other youth-serving organizations can help young people adopt lifelong attitudes and behaviors that support their health and well-being—including behaviors that reduce their risk for HIV , other STDs , and unintended pregnancy . The  National HIV/AIDS Strategy calls for all Americans to be educated about HIV. This includes knowing how HIV is transmitted and prevented, and knowing which behaviors place individuals at greatest risk for infection. HIV awareness and education should be universally integrated into all educational environments.

    * A note on historical comparisons. Historical data on calculus course taking from 1990, 2000, 2005 and 2009 can be found here . But these older figures and the new June 2015 report are not measuring exactly the same thing. For the older figures, percentages of calculus takers are among high school graduates, not all students who started high school. It excludes high school dropouts. The new June 2015 report included every student who began high school in 2009, including dropouts, of which there were 4 percent. An additional 4 percent of the students were still in high school, but hadn’t graduated yet.   So the change in calculus taking from percent in 2009 to percent does not necessarily mean there was really a decline in calculus taking. It might have been a slight increase.  But the fact that calculus course taking among Asian-Americans grew from 42 percent in 2009, excluding drop outs, to 45 percent in 2013, including drop outs, is a sign that more and more Asians are indeed taking the subject.
