New Jersey Student Health Survey

Every odd numbered calendar year, the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) conducts a survey of student self reported health behaviors using a core of questions from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey, developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and selected additional questions from other sources. In some years, school and student survey participation rates have reached the 60% threshold established by CDC for use of statistical comparisons of findings over time and between population groups. In those years for which the New Jersey survey reached this threshold, the New Jersey findings are published by CDC as a Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) and included in the CDC on-line data tool Youth OnLine. Beginning with the 2003 survey, the NJDOE initiated a rotation schedule for some questions so that they are asked every four years.  The survey reports may be downloaded and reproduced without restriction.
