In the six years since The National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy pub-lished Emerging Answers: Research Findings on Programs to Reduce Teen Pregnancy, the number of studies measuring program impact has increased by 50 percent, their methodological rigor has improved substantially, and additional studies on the behavior that affects teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease (STD) as well as the factors affecting that behavior have been published. These developments are heartening because they give a clearer picture of which programs are effective and why. Emerging Answers 2007: Research Findings on Programs to Reduce Teen Pregnancy and Sexually Transmitted Disease summarizes all of this research.
