Query Builder for Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) Query Module - Went Without Eating For 24 Hours or More to Lose Weight or to Avoid Gaining Weight


The YRBS Survey data in this IBIS-Q query module is collected by the Utah State Office of Education as part of the biennial Utah School Health And Risk Prevention Survey (SHARP) project. The YRBS includes surveys of representative samples of 9th through 12th grades students in public schools. It collects uniform, state-specific data on risk behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death, disability, and social problems among youth and adults. In addition to determining the prevalence of health risk behaviors, the YRBS assesses changes over time and allows comparisons to national data and data collected by other states.
