Methodology Notes

The priority health-risk behaviors are: injuries (intentional and unintentional), violence, suicide, tobacco use and addiction , alcohol, drug use, unintended pregnancy, HIV/AIDS, and STD infection, dietary patterns, and inadequate physical activity.

Post secondary institutions include 2 and 4-year community colleges, private colleges, and universities.

Will use the Spring version of this survey for consistency with the baseline Measurements.
