Every two years since 1993, the Department of Health's Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs, and the Department of Education's Coordinated School Health Programs have sponsored the Vermont Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS).
The YRBS measures the prevalence of behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death, disease, and injury among youth. The YRBS is part of a larger effort to help communities increase the “resiliency” of young people by reducing high risk behaviors and promoting healthy behaviors.
Youth Risk Behavior Survey Reports
In addition to the reports, a variety of resources related to the data can be found at the individual YRBS website pages. More recent pages include survey changes, statewide and local reports, statewide highlights, data briefs, and the questionnaires.
* 1995 - 2003 reports are PDF documents
