HAPPENING IN OUR COMMUNITIES - ILLINOIS YOUTH SURVEY
Across the state of Illinois, schools are offered the opportunity every two years to administer a survey to students in 6, 8, 10, and 12th grades. The Illinois Youth Survey (IYS) covers a number of problem behaviors, including bullying, other violence, nutrition, and the use of gateway (alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, inhalants) and other drugs. It also measures key risk and protective factors that strongly contribute to community-wide substance use rates. For more information or to view the Illinois Youth Survey - 2014 County Report (Lake).
