Development And Validation Of A Sexual Risk Behaviour Scale (SRBS) In NIGERIA[ ]

It remains a challenge till today that no standardized uniform sexual risk behaviour scale is available for use in Nigeria. This research developed, validated and established the psychometric properties of a self-report sexual risk behaviour scale (SRBS). The SRBS was derived from several sources and it consists of 6 items. Adult population of men and women (N=450) responded to the initial 19-item scale that was statistically reduced to 6-item scale. Factor analysis using principal component analysis was done for the 6-item sexual risk behaviour scale and revealed three components named casual sex, unprotected sex and alcohol-induced sex. For reliability, the 6-item SRBS demonstrated an internal consistency of alpha=.85 and for validity, the scale demonstrated strong associations with much longer previously validated scales of sexual compulsivity scale (r =.18, p<.01), condom use barriers (r =.19, p<.01), condom use negotiation (r =-.17, p<.01), depression (r =.23, p<.01), anxiety (r =.18, p<.01) and stress (r =.17, p<.01) respectively. We conclude that the sexual risk behaviour scale (SRBS) is internally consistent, stable, sensitive to change resulting from intervention and suitable for use or can be administered to low literacy populations.

Socio-cultural And Economic Aspects Of Squatter Settlements (Katchi Abadis) Of Multan City (Pakistan)[ ]

This is mainly a fact-finding cum analytical study. Improper residence and the absence of basic facilities can effect the functioning of the individuals. Since the growth pattern of Katchi Abadis and their existing facilities is a social phenomenon and is directly linked with urban life, individual, institutional functioning and human behavior, therefore, it falls in the realm of the discipline of urban sociology. The urban issues related to shelter and settlements emerged right from the time of Independence of Pakistan, when a large number of immigrants came from various parts of India and settled in big cities. Moreover the constant flow of rustle migrants has been multiplying the ever-increasing urban population in Pakistan. Indeed the rate of growth of Katchi Abadis has been rapid in big cities like Karachi, Lahore, Multan, Rawalpindi and Faisalabad. The reason may be that the rate of development activities is higher in these cities, which attract more labors force from rural areas as compared to the small cities. This paper will analyze the social, economic, cultural and demographic causes of the establishment of shantytowns and Katchi Abadis as well as find out the social problems prevailing in the squatter settlements. Moreover, it will identify the life patterns of the residential of squatter settlements, their educational, health and recreational patterns and explore the beliefs, values, norms and perception about the life, of the squatter settlements.
