Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System


The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) is a survey program conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to monitor health-risk behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death and disability among youth and young adults in the United States. The survey covers topics such as violence, substance use, sexual behaviors, and diet and physical activity. The YRBSS provides data at the national, state, and local levels, which can be used to inform public health policies and programs.
