Youth Health Behaviors

In-school surveys are the preferred method to collect representative information on the perceptions, attitudes, and behavior of youth. We are experts at administering these logistically complex surveys that require in-depth knowledge of how to work with administrators and teachers. Our experience includes fielding the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) in Maine, Illinois, and Rhode Island, where we have administered the survey biannually since 2007. We have also conducted in-school tobacco surveys in Maine and Virginia.

Our clients rely on our analytical and reporting acumen. We have weighted data for the Virginia Youth Survey (VYS) and for the Maine Youth Drug and Alcohol Use Study (MYDAUS). We have automated reporting to provide individual reports for schools, and we have provided ad-hoc analytical services to answer critical questions.
