The analysis was conducted by employing descriptive and inferential methods and binary logistic regression. The results of the study were among 433 adolescents in Kalimantan, 11% were married, 9.9% had given birth or were pregnant with their first child, 14.1% experienced sexual relations and 3.1% encountered sex at <15 years of age.
