YRBS State Tobacco Variables by Sex and Grade for 2013

$79 / year

The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) monitors six types of health-risk behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death and disability among youth and adults. This file contains state-level results for 13 tobacco-use variables by sex and grade for 2013.

Complexity

The YRBSS was developed in 1990 to monitor priority health risk behaviors that contribute markedly to the leading causes of death, disability, and social problems among youth and adults in the United States. These behaviors, often established during childhood and early adolescence, include

– Behaviors that contribute to unintentional injuries and violence.
– Sexual behaviors related to unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV infection.
– Alcohol and other drug use.
– Tobacco use.
– Unhealthy dietary behaviors.
– Inadequate physical activity.

In addition, the YRBSS monitors the prevalence of obesity and asthma and other priority health-related behaviors plus sexual identity and sex of sexual contacts.

From 1991 through 2015, the YRBSS has collected data from more than 3.8 million high school students in more than 1,700 separate surveys.
What are the purposes of the YRBSS?

The YRBSS was designed to

– Determine the prevalence of health behaviors.
– Assess whether health behaviors increase, decrease, or stay the same over time.
– Examine the co-occurrence of health behaviors.
– Provide comparable national, state, territorial, tribal, and local data.
– Provide comparable data among subpopulations of youth.
– Monitor progress toward achieving the Healthy People objectives and other program indicators.

What are the components of the YRBSS?

The YRBSS includes national, state, territorial, tribal government, and local school-based surveys of representative samples of 9th through 12th grade students. These surveys are conducted every two years, usually during the spring semester. The national survey, conducted by CDC, provides data representative of 9th through 12th grade students in public and private schools in the United States. The state, territorial, tribal government, and local surveys, conducted by departments of health and education, provide data representative of mostly public high school students in each jurisdiction.
