YRBS

What is YRBS?

 The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBS, sometimes also abbreviated as YRBSS) is a national school-based survey of high school students that monitors health-related risk behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death and disability among youth and adults, including Behaviors that contribute to unintentional injuries and violence, alcohol and other drug use, inadequate physical activity and more.

How is it useful?

This information tells us a lot about the youth of Douglas County and their daily activities, risk behaviors, and other matters. 

This website presents a variety of YRBS data compiled by the DCHD Health Data program that may be of interest to public policy makers, medical professionals, students, and interested members of the general public.
