Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System

The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBS) obtains information from a random sample of public middle and high school students about the prevalence and age of initiation of various health risk behaviors such as tobacco use, physical activity, eating habits, alcohol and drug use, and behaviors that contribute to unintentional injuries and violence.

Goals

  • To collect information on age of initiation and prevalence of various health risk behaviors for public middle and high school students in Georgia on a regular basis.

  • To make data reports available to the public, health care professionals, and educators.

  • To provide youth risk health behavior and outcome data to public health programs to assist in developing prevention strategies and evaluating program effectiveness.
