Welcome to the Iowa Youth Survey
The Iowa Youth Survey is conducted by the Iowa Department of Public Health's Division of Behavioral Health in collaboration with the Iowa Department of Education, the Governor’s Office of Drug Control Policy, the Iowa Department of Human Rights’ Criminal and Juvenile Justice Planning and Statistical Analysis Center, and the Iowa Department of Human Services.
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 alcohol and other drug use and violence, and their perceptions of their peer, family, school, and neighborhood/community environments. In 2008 the survey was administered online for the first time. The 2012 survey will also be online and will be conducted in October.
Iowa Youth Survey reports list responses to every question on the survey, providing total percentages and breakdowns by grade and gender. Twenty six constructs within nine framework domains are included.
Reports are available in the following categories:
Also available is the Iowa Youth Survey Trend Report which contains comparisons across all surveys using a youth development results framework.
