High School Students Who Have Used Alcohol in Past 30 Days 
Percent of students who reported that they used alcohol during the past 30 days.

This measure is important for monitoring priority health-risk behaviors that contribute substantially to the leading causes of death, disability, and social problems among youth. It also provides data for assessing changes in behavior and planning health messaging.

In 2016, the percentage of High School Students Who Have Used Alcohol in Past 30 Days in Alachua County was 27.6 compared to Florida at 25.5. The line graph shows change over time when there are at least three years of data.

Alachua County is in the third quartile for this measure. This means that relative to other counties in Florida, the situation occurs less often in about one half of the counties, and it occurs more often in about one quarter of the counties. The map illustrates county data by quartile. When fewer than 51 counties have data or zero values, no quartile map will be presented.

Data Note(s)
  • Blanks indicate counties that did not participate in the survey. Sufficient vigorous physical activity is defined as participating in physical activity that does make you sweat or breathe hard for 20 minutes or more, on three or more of the past 7 days.
  • This is the percent of students reporting any use of alcohol in past 30 days.
  • This is secondary data.
  • Chart will display if there are at least three years of data.
  • Multi-year counts are a sum of the selected years, not an average.
  • Quartiles are calculated when data are available for at least 51 counties.
  • MOV - Measure of Variability: Probable range of values resulting from random fluctuations in the number of events. Not calculated when numerator is below 5 or denominator is below 20, or count or rate is suppressed. The MOV is useful for comparing rates to a goal or standard. For example, if the absolute difference between the county rate and the statewide rate is less than the MOV, the county rate is not significantly different from the statewide rate (alpha level = 0.05). When the absolute difference between the county rate and the statewide rate is greater than the MOV, the county rate is significantly different from the statewide rate. MOV should not be used to determine if the rates of two different counties, or the county rates for two different years, are statistically significantly different.
  • Denom - abbreviated for denominator.
  • Population estimates are not available for persons whose county of residence is unknown. Given this, the denominator and associated rate are not available.
  • * - Indicates the county rate is statistically significantly different from the statewide rate.
