The Michigan Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) is part of a nationwide surveying effort led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to monitor students' health risks and behaviors in six categories identified as most likely to result in adverse outcomes. These categories include unintentional injury and violence, tobacco use, alcohol and other drug use, sexual behaviors that contribute to unintended pregnancy or disease, dietary behaviors, and physical inactivity. High response rates allow results of the Michigan YRBS to be generalized to all Michigan students in grades 9-12.
Results of the YRBS are disseminated in a variety of means, including:
- Executive Summary
- Topic Specific Fact Sheets
- Detailed Summary Tables
- YRBS presentations
To get national, state, and large city YRBS results, visit the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/HealthyYouth/yrbs.
