The factor structure of condom attitudes among black South African university students was investigated amongst 1203 undergraduate students - ranging in age from 16 to 45 years - at the University of the North, South Africa, using a 25-item anonymous self-rating questionnaire constructed by the authors to tap students' opinions and complaints about using condoms as a preventive measure against HIV/AIDS. Factor analysis reduced the items to five factors with five items each. Each of the factors correlated highly with the total scale and moderately or poorly with each other. Results indicate that the study is useful as a baseline and for providing information for further investigation into related topics amongst black South African university students.
