The Selection and Utility of Sexual Identity Labels in Youth

Adolescents' use of self-labeling in describing their sexual identity was explored using a nationwide internet survey. Participants were adolescents ages 18 to 22 of diverse racial and geographical backgrounds. 300 youth participated in the study, yielding 207 complete data sets. Quantitative data was analyzed to determine if any existed between the types of labels youth choose and their geographic location or their self-identification of being religious, spiritual, or neither. Additionally, qualitative data was analyzed to determine themes in how youth choose and make use of sexual identity labels.
