Abstract
PURPOSE
The purpose of this study is to investigate how sexual experience associate with the suicide ideation, suicide plan and suicide attempt among culturally diverse adolescents compared with Korean adolescents. METHODS: This study used a secondary data analysis study with the data derived from the 10~12th (2014~2016) Korean Youth Risk Behavior Web-based Survey. Data of 2,201 culturally diverse adolescents and 189,278 Korean adolescents were analyzed. Descriptive statistics, χ² test, and hierarchical logistic regression were used for data analysis. RESULTS: After controlled for individual, family and social factors as compounding variables, the suicide ideation of culturally diverse adolescents with sexual experience was higher for 1.72 (95% CI: 1.24~2.38), suicide plan for 2.24 (95% CI: 1.58~3.17) and suicide attempt for 2.71 (95% CI: 1.87~3.93) compared to Korean adolescents without sexual experience. Regardless of cultural diversity, the risk of suicide ideation, suicide plan and suicide attempt of adolescents with sexual experience was higher than adolescents without sexual experience. CONCLUSION: Our study findings indicate the highest need to prevent suicide ideation, suicide plan and suicide attempt among culturally diversity adolescents with sexual experience among all the other adolescents' group.
