Survey Data

The Youth Task Force (YTF) has been collecting data for over a decade from a variety of sources.  Initially, the first Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) was conducted in 1999.  The data from this survey provided the YTF with hard facts about use rates and issues for the school aged youth of Martha's Vineyard.  

Since this initial surveying, the YTF has assured the community that they will continue to collect data via the YRBS bi-annually.

Youth Risk Behavior Survey

The Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) is conducted every two years on MV. For this anonymous survey, all students in grades 7-12 are asked a series of questions related to health and risky behavior. The surveys are analyzed and compiled into a report by an off-island agency. The YRBS Survey Reports are utilized as a tool to shape YTF initiatives and create supports for students.
