Resumen

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Confidential Questionnaire of Active Sexual Life (Cuestionario confidencial de vida sexual activa) [CCVSA], developed in 1996 by the previous Colombian Ministry of Health and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), in a sample of 690 university students. The core of the study focused on sexual activity during the previous year. The CCVSA demonstrated solid psychometric properties with a reliability coefficient of 0.98. The validity of the questionnaire was manifested by analysis of the principal components, revealing the existence of two dimensions of behavior. These results seem relevant given the necessity to standardized information and to obtain profiles of behavior by means of reliable procedures, thus allowing a comparison and evaluation of the study.
