Youth Risk Behavior Survey
Maryland's 2004 General Assembly mandated that the public schools in Maryland participate in the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS). This survey is conducted every other year to survey participation of adolescents in at risk behaviors, their perception of safety in schools and healthy behaviors. The 2005 YRBS was conducted in Maryland for the first time.

Maryland Adolescent Survey
The Maryland Adolescent Survey (MAS) has been conducted since 1992. The survey is conducted every other year. It collects data to determine the nature, extent, and trend of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug (ATOD) use among adolescents and provides findings on: protective factors; knowledge about the consequences of ATOD use; parenting and peer influences; information about impaired driving among twelfth graders; and reveals how safe our students feel at school, going to or from school, and in their neighborhoods.
