What is the Youth Risk Behavior Survey?

The Montana Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) assists educators and health professionals in determining the prevalence of health-risk behaviors as self-reported by Montana youth. Initiated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 1988, this aims to identify the leading causes of mortality, morbidity, and social problems among youth.
