The data about the Middle School Students Who Rarely or Never Wore a Seat Belt come from the Middle School Youth Risk Behavior Survey (MS-YRBS).
The MS-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, substance use, physical activity, and dietary behaviors. In Florida, the MS-YRBS data is collected at the state level in public and charter middle schools during odd-numbered years.
