New YRBS Data Brief: Youth Smoking in Cuyahoga County
The Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) team has released Youth Smoking in Cuyahoga County, a data brief that gives a brief snapshot of teen tobacco use habits using data from the 2017 high school survey. Some key points from the data brief: 
  • More than 1 in 6 high school youth smoked tobacco in the past 30 days. 
  • Youth in Cuyahoga County are smoking at a lower rate than adults in Cuyahoga County (18.7% in 2015), however, they are choosing products that are less regulated and potentially more accessible than cigarettes. 
  • 7.6% of students reported using at least two tobacco products. There are significant differences in product choice across race/ethnicity.
