Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey

This data about the High School Students Who Have Experienced at Least One Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) come from the Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey (FYSAS).

The FYSAS, one of four statewide, school-based surveys included in the Florida Youth Survey (FYS), tracks indicators assessing risk and protective factors for substance abuse, in addition to substance abuse prevalence. In Florida, FYSAS data is collected among public and charter high school and middle school students annually at the state level and at the county level in even years.

In 2023, in Alachua County, data was not measured for High School Students Who Have Experienced at Least One Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) (FYSAS) (Overall) compared to 64% statewide.

Data Note(s)


Data Source: Florida Department of Health, Division of Community Health Promotion, Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey (FYSAS).

  • Prevalence is excluded (blank cells or missing years of data) from the tables for any subpopulation with a sample size less than 30, which would yield statistically unreliable estimates. Prevalence is also excluded for years when the survey question was not asked or for counties and subpopulations where data was not weighted due to low participation rate. Trend lines may be suppressed for certain subpopulations if data is excluded.

  • Confidence intervals – Because the FYSAS is a survey and all estimates of prevalence are subject to random sample errors, we include 95% confidence intervals with each prevalence (%) in the tables. The confidence interval ranges appear below the prevalence estimates in parentheses.

  • Chart will display if there are at least three years of data.

  • Quartiles are calculated when data is available for at least 51 counties.

  • This is primary, quantitative data.
