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). The data here is presented by individual grade level to show trends within the two groups.
Indicator updated July 2018.
