High School and Middle School 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.

The CDC requires a response rate of at least 60% to weigh state YRBS data. Hawaii does not have state-level data for middle schools in 2000 or for high schools in 2003. County-level data began to be collected in 2011. The response rate for high schools in Hawaii County in 2011 was not sufficient for weighting, so high school county level data are not reported in 2011.

National and state estimates for the high school survey can be obtained using the Youth Online query tool. The YRBS is a joint effort of the Hawaii State Department of Education, the Hawaii State Department of Health and the University of Hawaii Curriculum Research & Development Group in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
