Youth Risk Behavior Survey

HCHY helps Marquette County schools conduct the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) every two years. This data helps the coalition understand trends among local youth and areas of concern for their health and well-being. Survey results help us define programming and goals in the future. This survey has been conducted in the county since 2006. The countywide results are available by request.
