Reports & Data:
Youth Risk Behavior Survey

The Montana Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) assists educators and health professionals in determining the prevalence of health-risk behaviors as self-reported by Montana youth. In 1988, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) initiated a process to identify the leading causes of mortality, morbidity and social problems among youth.
