      YRBS : data summary & trends report 2007-2017
    • Description:
      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH) routinely monitors youth health behaviors and experiences; collaborates with education agencies to implement primary prevention of HIV, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and teen pregnancy; and conducts research to evaluate innovative prevention strategies. CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report Surveillance Summary on the 2017 National Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS)1 provides the most recent surveillance data on health behaviors and experiences among high school students across the country. It reports on risks that contribute to the leading causes of death and disability among youth and young adults. In this current report, DASH uses YRBS data to focus on four priority focus areas associated with sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV, and unintended teen pregnancy: Sexual Behavior, High-Risk Substance Use, Violence Victimization, and Mental Health and Suicide. To raise awareness and understanding, this report presents the 2017 data by sex, by race/ethnicity, and for sexual minority youth. We also look at the past decade and examine linear YRBS trends for each focus area. Publication date from document properties. trendsreport.pdf
