THE YRBS QUESTIONNAIRE
The high school version of the 2007 YRBS questionnaire includes 87 items that address these five risk behavior areas: (1) alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use; (2) behaviors that lead to unintentional injuries and violence; (3) sexual behaviors that contribute to unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases; (4) poor nutrition; and (5) low levels of physical activity. The middle school version of the questionnaire addresses the same five behavioral categories using a reduced item set with only 49 questions.
