2015 Youth Risk Behavior Survey Results
In New Hampshire, YRBS is jointly administered by the Departments of Health & Human Services and Education. High schools are given the opportunity to participate in either the random state survey, a comprehensive school-level census survey, or both. The survey was administered in New Hampshire schools during the early winter of 2015. The results are now available. The data from the YRBS are used extensively by health departments, schools, and local area agencies to define areas of high health risk and to secure the resources necessary to address any identified issues.
