2013 Youth Risk Behavior Survey

Monday, April 1, 2013, 1:56 pm

The 2013 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) was recently conducted by nearly 85% of Montana schools with grades 7-12.  Almost 31,000 students participated in the biennial survey which measures unintentional injuries and violence, tobacco use, alcohol and other drug use, sexual behaviors, nutrition and dietary behaviors and physical activity.  School-specific results will be available in early May via the web-based application located at www.opi.mt.gov/yrbs.   Access the school-specific data by using the YRBS User information which was e-mailed to superintendents and the YRBS coordinator at each school in December 2012. For security questions related to accessing your data please contact Mary Graff at mgraff@mt.gov.  The Office of Public Instruction has administered the YRBS, through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, for 22 years.
