The Youth Risk Behavior Survey is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) funded project that was developed in 1990 to monitor a selection of youth health behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death and disability. These behaviors are often developed during childhood and adolescence. The Iowa Youth Risk Behavior Survey is administered to 9th through 12th grade students in a randomly selected sample of Iowa high schools in odd calendar years. The YRBS assists the Iowa Department of Health and Human Services with understanding youth behaviors that relate to: Injuries Violence Mental Health and Suicide Unintended Pregnancy Sexually Transmitted Infections (Including HIV) Alcohol and Drug Use Tobacco Use Dietary Behaviors Physical Activity Obesity Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) (2021 only)
