DASH - Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS): High School – Including Sexual Orientation

2015-2017. High School Dataset – Including Sexual Orientation. The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) monitors six categories of priority health behaviors

among youth and young adults: 1) behaviors that contribute to unintentional injuries and violence; 2) tobacco use; 3) alcohol and

other drug use; 4) sexual behaviors related to unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including human

immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection; 5) unhealthy dietary behaviors; and 6) physical inactivity. In addition, YRBSS monitors

the prevalence of obesity and asthma and other priority health behaviors. This dataset contains national, state, and local data from 2015 that includes two aspects of sexual orientation – sexual identity and sex of sexual contacts. Additional information about the YRBSS can be found at
