Youth Risk Behavior Survey/Youth Tobacco Survey (YRBS/YTS)

The Maryland YRBS/YTS is an on-site survey of students in Maryland public middle and high schools, focusing on behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death and disability, including but not limited to, alcohol and other drug use, tobacco use, sexual behaviors, unintentional injuries and violence, and poor physical activity and dietary behaviors.

The YRBS/YTS is a combination of CDC's Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) and Youth Tobacco Survey (YTS) and is administered every even year during the fall semester to measure and monitor youth risk behaviors.
