This report details the tabulated results of the Baltic Sea Regional Study on Adolescents' Sexuality. This study was done in several member countries of the Council of the Baltic States from 2003 through 2004. The purpose of the survey was to gather information on the sexual abuse and exploitation of adolescents around the age of 18 years old.

The data were collected through self-completed questionnaires filled out during class. The questionnaire was developed by researchers at Norwegian Social Research and contained the main topics of sexual abuse, mental health symptoms, sexual behavior, drug use, and tobacco use. The surveys were performed in each country with the help of country-specific organizations.
