Results: The achieve rate of requirement (ARR) in Western China was the lowest compared with the Eastern and Middle China. Regression analysis showed that in Eastern China, youth with characteristics of female, older age, non-religious beliefs and treatment of sexually experienced were much easier to utilize SRH services; in Middle China, youth with female, older age, sexually experience, youth not at school were much easier to utilize SRH services; and in Western China, youth with female, older age, non-religious beliefs were much easier to utilize SRH services.
