2010 Healthy Youth Survey results available
Submitted by ara on March 16, 2011 - 14:24
The Healthy Youth Survey is taken every two years by Washington youth in grades six, eight, ten and twelve at more than 1,000 public schools.
The survey, which is anonymous and voluntary, focuses on attitudes and health risk behaviors around topics such as alcohol, drug and tobacco use, physical activity, and bullying. The results are used to plan, implement, and evaluate state youth programs.
The Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) is committed to reducing underage drinking, and is pleased to note a downward trend of underage drinking. However, there is more work to be done in order to continue this trend.
