Purpose of the VYS

  • The Virginia Youth Survey (VYS) has been developed to monitor priority health risk behaviors that contribute markedly to the leading causes of death, disability, and social problems among youth within the Commonwealth of Virginia.

  • The Virginia Youth Survey is conducted by the Virginia Department of Health and the Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth, in collaboration with the Virginia Department of Education using funding from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

  • The survey measures various behaviors including:

    • Behaviors related to injuries and violence

    • Alcohol and other drug use

    • Dietary behaviors

    • Physical activity

  • Additional technical information and data are available on the VDH website: http://www.vahealth.org/youthsurvey

Purpose of the vys1

Purpose of the VYS

  • VYS results will help measure how many youth engage in health risk behaviors and how many practice health-promoting behaviors.

  • This year’s results will be compared with previous years' results to see trends over time (see example to the left for smoking trends).

  • The survey results will be used to create school and community programs to encourage health and safety and to reduce risk behaviors.
