The YOUTH RISK BEHAVIOR SURVEY (YRBS) report presents data which demonstrate the association between health-risk behaviors by sex and by grade. The survey is given to students grades 9-12 . Parents/guardians may "opt out" on behalf of their child, and any student may choose not to answer any or all question(s). This same survey is given to youth across New Hampshire, and across the United States. You can find the national data HERE.
These linked reports show the 2021 data for Franklin, for the region, and for the State of NH and include comparisons to past years.
In 2017, 2019, and 2023 the Franklin Partners in Prevention (Formerly known as Mayor's Drug Task Force) has sponsored the administration of the middle school version. In 2023 all 6th, 7th, and 8th graders were offered the chance to participate. Again, parents/guardians may "opt out" on behalf of their child, and any student may choose not to answer any or all question(s).
The 2023 results of the Middle School YRBS have been analyzed and will be available here soon.
The 2017 and 2019 versions of the Middle School Survey are also attached, as there is not historical comparison included.
