Youth Risk Behavior Survey Results

  • For the first time, the Fort Worth Independent School District (FWISD) participated in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 2015 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS). This anonymous survey was completed by 2,604 randomly selected students enrolled in grades 9-12. The results are weighted to be representative of all FWISD high school students. The YRBS was developed to monitor priority health risk behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death, disability, and social problems among youth and adults in the United States. These behaviors, often established during childhood and early adolescence, include:

    • Behaviors that contribute to unintentional injuries and violence
    • Sexual behaviors that contribute to unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV infection
    • Alcohol and other drug use
    • Tobacco use
    • Unhealthy dietary behaviors
    • Inadequate physical activity

    FWISD will use these results to drive decisions on health education, student support services and coordinated health. This survey will be administered again in 2017 and 2019.
