Developed by CDC in cooperation with federal, state, and private-sector partners, this voluntary system includes a national survey of about 15,000 students and smaller surveys conducted by state and local education agencies. The YRBSS focuses on priority risk behaviors such as tobacco use and provides vital information to improve health programs.
