The Alexandria YRBS is done to learn more about youth behaviors that can affect their health. It focuses on six risk areas identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
- Physical health
- Behaviors that contribute to unintentional or intentional injuries
- Alcohol and other drug use
- Tobacco use
- Sexual behaviors that contribute to unintended pregnancy or sexually transmitted infections, including HIV
- Dietary behavior
This survey is very useful for Alexandria because it was done directly with the youth in our local schools, and not from neighboring communities.
