Colorado Obtains Weighted Data on the 2011 Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (i.e., Youth Risk Behavior Survey). More information to come at the March 2, 2012 Coalition Meeting.
Colorado administers CDC's School Health Profiles from February-April 2012.
As a component of the funded project from the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC), CDE’s Office of Health and Wellness
supports ongoing surveillance efforts to measure trends in student
health behavior and school-level health policies. The Healthy Kids
Colorado Survey is the local name for CDC’s Youth Risk Behavior
Survey, which is administered every other year with a sample of
Colorado school to determine prevalence of health-risk behavior and
trends related to these behaviors. CDC’s School Health Profiles
are also collected every other year from secondary principals and health
education teachers to provide data on school health policies and
practices in Colorado.
