Alaska Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS)


Questionnaires

The Alaska YRBS program seeks input on the upcoming YRBS questionnaire in late summer and fall of even-numbered years. The questionnaires are developed and released for review before the YRBS is given. They are year-specific and subject to change from one survey year to the next.

Other YRBS questionnaires

Standard high school, national high school, and middle school YRBS questionnaires are available through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) YRBSS questionnaires page. All three CDC questionnaires are year-specific and subject to change from one survey administration to the next. Additional YRBS documentation, which includes question rationale (standard questionnaire only) and YRBS standard, national, and middle school questionnaire history, is also available on this page.

  • Standard high school questionnaire The standard questionnaire is the survey instrument the CDC develops for state and local-level data collection. States can use the standard questionnaire as-is or modify it to suit their needs. The Alaska YRBS program typically chooses to modify the standard questionnaire, omitting some CDC standard questions and including some state-added questions.
  • National high school questionnaire The national questionnaire is used to collect data that are representative of students in grades 9–12 in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The Alaska YRBS program does not use this questionnaire, although many of the questions on this questionnaire are included in the Alaska YRBS questionnaire, allowing for comparisons with national YRBS data.
  • Middle school questionnaire The CDC offers a middle school questionnaire for states that wish to conduct a middle school YRBS. Alaska does not currently offer a middle school YRBS.
