Thursday, May 30, 2013, 3:47 pm

Results from the recently completed 2013 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) are now available at www.opi.mt.gov/yrbs.  School-specific and district-wide data results are available using the YRBS User name and password emailed to district superintendents and the YRBS Coordinator at each school in December. The 2013 Montana YRBS High School results should be available in June from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  Six additional reports are available for grades 7-8, Native American students on reservations, Native American students in urban schools, non-public accredited schools, alternative schools, and students with disabilities in the formats of frequency distributions and trend data.  County data that meets anonymity criteria is available upon request.  The YRBS is a self-reporting student survey which, since 1991, has been used to monitor health risk behaviors that can result in morbidity or mortality.  The six areas of questioning are unintentional injuries and violence, tobacco use, alcohol and other drug use, sexual behaviors, nutrition and dietary behaviors and physical inactivity.
