New Release: 2013 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System-Adolescent Health

CDC's Division of Adolescent and School Health has released the 2013 National, State, and District Combined Datasets on the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) website at

The combined datasets are unique because
  • they include more than 1.3 million records from 820 YRBS high school surveys conducted from 1991-2013;
  • the standard variables have been aligned across the years to facilitate trend analyses and combining data; and
  • they include selected additional data from optional questions about sexual identity, sex of sexual contacts, HIV testing, bullying, and other topics.
The website includes:
  • documentation that explains the contents of the datasets and how to use the data;
  • MS Access® and ASCII versions of the data; and
  • SAS® and SPSS® programs to access the data.

The YRBS website has been redesigned and reorganized to make it easier to view and access content across devices.  Learn more!
