This factsheet provides selected key indicators for the state of Bihar, drawn from the Youth in India: Situation and Needs Study (Youth Study) 2006–07. The main goal of the Youth Study was to provide information on the situation of youth in India and the life choices available to them on a broad range of sexual and reproductive health issues, including both behaviors and their antecedents, through a population-based study. Findings are expected to inform evidence-based programming to address the health and other needs of young people. The subnational Youth Study was undertaken in six states: Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, and Tamil Nadu. Included in this factsheet are indicators on: socio-demographic profiles, young people’s control over their own lives, sexual and reproductive health knowledge, premarital romantic and sexual relationships, self-reported health problems, youth lifestyle, program participation and voting experience, and married life. Sample size and response rate, population and household profile, and percentage of youth in surveyed population are also included.
