Vermont Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS).
The Vermont Youth Risk Behavior Survey is a biennial, voluntary survey
of students attending middle and high schools in Vermont. The survey
seeks to monitor trends in student health and risk behaviors. The
indicators as a whole reflect a broad definition of youth well-being.
Not only do the indicators monitor behaviors associated with negative
health and psychological outcomes, but they also measure "developmental
assets" - internal resources and skills, as well as community, school,
and other institutional supports. These assets foster the development
of thriving young adults.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Prior to 2011, the survey was completed by students in grades 8-12. In 2011, the survey split into a high school survey (students in grades 9-12) and a middle school survey (students in grades 6-8). Comparisons should not be made between 2011 and prior years, since prior to 2011 the sample included students in grades 8-12.
