Florida High School Youth Risk Behaviors (State Level Data)

The data about the High School Students Who Did Not Use Any Method to Prevent Pregnancy During Last Sexual Intercourse (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.

In 2021, the percent of High School Students Who Did Not Use Any Method to Prevent Pregnancy During Last Sexual Intercourse (HS-YRBS) (Overall) was 12.8% in Florida.

  • Confidence intervals – Because the YRBS 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.

  • This is secondary, quantitative data.

  • The wording of the survey question asking about the method used to prevent pregnancy during last sexual intercourse changed in 2021 to reflect last sexual intercourse with an opposite-sex partner.
