DASH - Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS): High School – Including Sexual Orientation
2015-2017. High School Dataset – Including Sexual Orientation. The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) monitors six categories of priority health behaviors
among youth and young adults: 1) behaviors that contribute to unintentional injuries and violence; 2) tobacco use; 3) alcohol and
other drug use; 4) sexual behaviors related to unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including human
immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection; 5) unhealthy dietary behaviors; and 6) physical inactivity. In addition, YRBSS monitors
the prevalence of obesity and asthma and other priority health behaviors. This dataset contains national, state, and local data from 2015 that includes two aspects of sexual orientation – sexual identity and sex of sexual contacts.
