The Iowa Youth Survey is a joint effort conducted by the Iowa Department of Public Health, the Iowa Department of Education, Office of Drug Control Policy, Iowa Department of Human Rights, Criminal and Juvenile Justice Planning and Statistical Analysis Center.
In the fall of 1999, 2002, 2005, 2008, 2010, and 2012 students in the 6th, 8th, and 11th grades across the state of Iowa answered questions about their attitudes and experiences regarding substance abuse and violence, and their perceptions of their peer, family, school, and neighborhood/community environments. Another survey is scheduled for the fall of 2014.
