Description*
The YRBSS was developed in 1990 to monitor priority health risk behaviors that contribute markedly to the leading causes of death, disability, and social problems among youth and adults in the United States. These behaviors, often established during childhood and early adolescence. In addition, the YRBSS monitors the prevalence of obesity and asthma and other priority health-related behavior. From 1991 through 2015, the YRBSS has collected data from more than 3.8 million high school students in more than 1,700 separate surveys. The Youth Risk Behavior Survey is an anonymous, self-reporting high school-based survey that monitors six types of health-risk behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death and disability among youth and young adults. In addition to risk behaviors, minimal demographic information is collected, such as Gender, Age, Grade Level, and Race/ethnicity. State-level data derived from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey will include weighted data that will allow for California to compare its youth risk behaviors to all other states. The target population is high school students and schools and classrooms are randomly selected by the Centers for Disease, Control, and Prevention (CDC).
