Florida High School Youth Risk Behaviors (State Level Data)

The data about the High School Students Who Rarely or Never Wore a Seat Belt (HS-YRBS) come from the High School Youth Risk Behavior Survey (HS-YRBS).

The HS-YRBS, one of four statewide, school-based surveys included in the Florida Youth Survey (FYS), tracks indicators of behaviors that contribute to unintentional injuries and violence, sexual behaviors, substance use, tobacco use, physical activity, and dietary behaviors. In Florida, the HS-YRBS data is collected at the state level in public and charter high schools during odd-numbered years.
