The main purpose of this report is to highlight descriptive statistics and trends in a number of domains, including use of mass media and communication technology, attitude towards domestic violence, knowledge of HIV and AIDS, and subjective well-being of female adolescents aged 15-19 in Nepal. Within these domains, sub-group analysis disaggregated by geographical area as well as socioeconomic characteristics helps identify the most marginalized of adolescent groups.
