Youth Risk Behavior Survey

A look at youth prevention

Preventing Summit County Youth from abusing drugs begins with knowing what is happening with our youth. This survey examines the youth population so prevention strategies can be implemented based on real data collected.

The County of Summit ADM Board partnered with the Summit County Health District to engage researchers at Case Western Reserve University to conduct the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) for Summit County middle and high school students. The survey results is a baseline measurement and informs initiatives funded by both the ADM Board and the Health District to address identified areas of concern.

The Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) provides data on health-risk behaviors for students in the United States, including behaviors that contribute to injuries and violence; alcohol or other drug use; tobacco use; sexual risk behaviors; unhealthy dietary behaviors; and physical inactivity. The YRBS also measured the prevalence of obesity and asthma among youth and young adults.

The Summit County surveys took place in 2013 and again in 2018.
