Youth Risk Behavior Survey Results
The 2013 Saugus Youth Survey was adapted from the 2011 Massachusetts Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) by the Centers for Disease Control. Questions in the survey measured student demographics, substance use, protective factors, suicidal behaviors, personal safety, sexual health, and exercise and weight loss.  Saugus Middle School & Saugus High School students completed a youth survey to assess a host of risk and protective factors.  This report provides the detailed survey findings. The survey was administered on May 12, 2013. Following the data cleaning procedure, the final sample size for the Saugus High School Youth Risk Behavior Survey is 569 students. Following the data cleaning procedure, the final sample size for the Saugus Middle School Youth Risk Behavior Survey is 614 students. Below are some of the results from the 2013 Saugus YRBS.

COMPARISON DATA  Since the survey administered at the High & Middle School was based on an existing instrument, comparison data for many question items is publicly available.  Comparisons are useful for providing context to survey results and can aid in identifying both strengths and priority areas. State comparison numbers used are from the 2011 Massachusetts Youth Risk Behavior Survey data set reported by The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and Public Health. This is the most current comparison data available. For the High School, national comparison numbers are from the 2011 Youth Risk Behavior Survey data set issued by the Centers for Disease Control.  National comparison numbers are not available for middle school students.
CORRECTION:  Some of this data from the Saugus YRBS will be discussed on Wednesday February 26, at the Town Hall.  This meeting will discuss the results of the recent assessment done in Saugus in regards to the opiate grant. The YRBS in it’s entirety will be discussed at a community meeting, but the date will be posted at a later time.
