YRBS Health Indicator Selection

Overview

The YRBS collects information on health-risk behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death and disability among youth and young adults. It is a paper survey administered to public school students every other year.
Two different surveys are administered: one to middle school students (grades 6-8) and one to high school students (grades 9-12). The sample is chosen using a two-stage, stratified random sampling method. The results are weighted by sex, grade, and race/ethnicity.
National estimates for the high school survey can be obtained using the [https://nccd.cdc.gov/Youthonline/App/Default.aspx Youth Online] query tool.
The YRBS data in this IBIS query module have been collected by the Hawaii State Department of Education and the Hawaii State Department of Health, Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Division, in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
