The 2010 Healthy Youth Survey was completed... 2010 HYS participation By 211,331 students... In 1,145 schools... In all 39 counties.
How do we know the results are valid? Use questions from established youth surveys. Standard administration: Student and parental notification. Standardized administration procedures (e.g., coordinator training, teacher training, written instructions, teacher stays in room but at desk, single class period to avoid discussion, absent students do not make up). Survey is anonymous. Students informed of importance of the survey. Students place own answer sheet in envelope. Data cleaning: Remove surveys with multiple inconsistent answers, evidence of faking a high level of use, dishonesty.
Uses of HYS Data Prevalence of health and safety related behaviors. Use in grant applications. Program planning and evaluation. Needs assessment. Justify need for new or existing programs/efforts. Highlight association between health-related behaviors and academic achievement. Target setting and monitoring.
