Youth Risk Behavior Survey Data
The YRBS is the largest public health surveillance system in the United States. While Cuyahoga County data are not included in the national survey data, it is important to maintain a reliable source of health behavior data at the local level. We present the data in two ways, full reports for all behaviors and topic-specific reports.
 
The YRBS data can be used in many ways. Locally, data are most commonly used to:
  • apply for funding surrounding a local health issue
  • evaluate the impact of curriculum and interventions in schools
  • provide data for press releases and policy decisions
  • assess trends in health risk behaviors over time and across regions
  • compare county progress to achieving national benchmarks for Healthy People 2020
