The CDC YRBS survey monitors students' health risks and behaviors in several categories, including weight and diet, physical activity, injury and violence, tobacco use, alcohol, and other drug use, and sexual behaviors. The YRBS is conducted every 2 years among a representative group of NY students in grades 9–12. The NYS Center for School Health conducts the YRBS in NYS on behalf of the NYS Education Department.
