2015 Youth Risk Behavior Survey

2013 YRBS Report


Every other year, since 1993, the Department of Health Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs and the Agency of Education Student Health and Learning Team sponsor 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 survey is part of a larger effort to help communities increase the “resiliency” of young people by reducing high risk behaviors and promoting healthy behaviors.

The statewide report is based on student responses from almost every high school and middle school in the state, and is weighted to reflect all public school students in six through twelfth grades. The reports by local education agency are the results for students who took the survey in each participating supervisory union, school district, or public/private institution. The reports by county are results based on students’ counties of residence.

Important note about comparing one district/SU to another: While the 2015 methodology allows for direct comparisons, there are many factors influencing children’s risk behaviors, and assumptions around the cause of differences between districts may not be accurate.
