The data results presented are a sample of larger surveys administered to students in San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) in 2013.  This data can be used to make inferences regarding the health-risk behaviors of all SFUSD students. Student Health Surveys - powerpoint slides

  • The Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS), developed in 1990 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to monitor priority health risk behaviors has been administered in SFUSD since 1990. 

  • The YRBS, developed and managed by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, is administered by SFUSD and ETR Associates every two years to a random sample of students across all SFUSD middle and high schools. In SY13-14, the YRBS was completed by 2,553 MS students (a 77% response rate) and 1,953 HS students (a 75% response rate). The weighted results are representative of all SFUSD students in middle schools (6-8) and high schools (9-12).

Survey results indicate that San Francisco Unified students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning (LGBTQ) experience greater health and safety risks. While there have been areas of growth in the health risk behaviors identified by students in SFUSD, the YRBS and SFUSD School Climate Survey support that we have room to grow in health and safety promoting behaviors.
