Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS)
The PRCHN has a long history working with the local and state level YRBS data, spearheading the effort to collect local data as far back as 1995. The PRCHN (and preceding centers) has administered the local YRBS in more than 188 schools across Cuyahoga County over the past 9 years. Reports and presentations are given annually and made available through the "Reports and Publications" page.
The PRCHN has also collaborated with ODH in the administration of the state YRBS in Cuyahoga County so as to minimize the burden on local school districts. This successful collaboration led to the Division of School and Adolescent Health, ODH contracting with the PRCHN to coordinate the 2015 statewide data collection.
In addition community coalitions contract with the PRCHN to collect and provide project specific information to be used for program planning and evaluation.
