2018 Youth Risk Behavior Survey Full Results

The 2018 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) provides data from students on their risky behaviors. Last spring, students in grades 6 - 8 (John Glenn Middle School - JGMS) and grades 9 - 12 (Bedford High School - BHS) answered questions about smoking, drinking, sexual behavior, bullying, and other risky behaviors. This data helps inform the health curriculum in our schools and health programs offered in the town.  See how well you know our students by taking the following QUIZ 


“Infographics” are information graphics that can be used to market messages and display data in ways that are both informational and motivational.  Used frequently in journalism and social media, infographics present data through a combination of words, numerals, and pictures and are generally used to target specific audiences. SSRE worked with us to develop the infographics with the Bedford YRBS data to better educate our community about areas of concern.
