     Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS)

    The Alaska YRBS is a joint project of the Alaska Departments of Health and Social Services and Education and Early Development. Funding for the Alaska YRBS comes from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, and numerous community partners. The YRBS collects information about Alaska teens, including behaviors that affect health. Students in almost every state in the United States complete the YRBS every other year. In Alaska, about 7,000 high school students from about 30 school districts participate. The YRBS is anonymous. No personal identifying information is collected. The survey is administered in a way that protects student privacy.


    Selected high school classes will participate in the paper-pencil YRBS administration on Tuesday, February 21st during 2nd period.

    The middle school YRBS will be administering electronically to all 7th & 8th graders between February 27th and March 9th.


    The results of this survey are used by schools and communities to create and improve adolescent health programs. The YRBS results can be found on the Alaska YRBS website: http://dhss.alaska.gov/dph/Chronic/Pages/yrbs/yrbs.aspx
