YRBSS data helps develop programs and policies to positively impact student health behaviors

Five Teenage Friends

The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) is a national school-based survey supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which is implemented and conducted through a cooperative agreement with the Louisiana Department of Education (DOE) to monitor priority health-risk behaviors among youth. Results from the YRBSS are used to guide programs and policies that support health and set and track progress toward achieving school health and health promotion program goals.

The DOE offers training and technical assistance to state agencies, local education agencies, schools, community-based organizations and other entities on utilizing the YRBSS data to develop programs and policies to positively impact student health behaviors.
