The Youth Risk Behavior Survey Data Summary & Trends Report uses YRBS data from 2009 to 2019 to focus on four priority focus areas associated with STDs, including HIV, and unintended teen pregnancy:
- Sexual Behavior
- High-Risk Substance Use
- Experiencing Violence, and
- Mental Health and Suicide.
These health risk behaviors and experiences contribute to substantial health problems for adolescents.
To raise awareness and understanding of the prevention needs of adolescents, this report presents ten-year trends for 24 variables using YRBS data by sex, by race/ethnicity, and by sexual minority status.
