School Health-Related Data
Wisconsin School Health Profiles
The School Health Profiles is conducted as part of a national effort by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to monitor the current status of school health programs. The components of a school health program monitored are health education; school health policies related to HIV infection/AIDS, tobacco use prevention, unintentional injuries and violence, physical activity, and food service; physical education; asthma management activities; and family and community involvement in school health programs. Go to School Health Education Profiles for Wisconsin results.
Wisconsin Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS)
The YRBS is conducted as part of a national effort by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to monitor health-risk behaviors of the nation's high school students. These behaviors, in turn, result in the most significant causes of both mortality and morbidity during youth and adulthood. The behaviors monitored by the Wisconsin YRBS include traffic safety; weapons and violence; suicide; tobacco use; alcohol and other drug use; sexual behavior; and diet, nutrition and exercise.
