Description
  • Abstract

    The dataset contains harmonized variables from four studies of men who have sex with men (MSM) conducted at Emory University from 2009-2013. The variables include the age and race/ethnicity of participants and their recent male sexual partners. The objective of the analysis was to examine racial differences in age mixing, including whether age mixing was related to prevalent HIV infection.

    Two of the four studies were Internet-based samples in the US. The two other studies sampled MSM in the Atlanta area, of which one used a mixture of online and offline recruitment methods and the other used offline methods exclusively. For all studies, participants were eligible if they were male at birth, aged 18 years or older, and had a male sex partner within a specified period prior to enrollment in the study. In order to examine differences in age mixing between Black and White MSM, we restricted our analytic samples to those who reported being Black or White and not Hispanic. All studies were reviewed and approved by the Emory University Institutional Review Board.
