The proposed project for Component 1: School-Based Surveillance for the Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE), is to continue to strengthen systematic procedures to collect, analyze, and report on adolescent health risk behaviors using the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) and on school health policies and practices using School Health Profiles Survey (Profiles) data.
The outcomes for the YRBS administered in 2019, 2021, and 2023 are to have statewide weighted data and county data from four counties for the middle and high schools. The outcomes for the Profiles administered in 2020 and 2022 are to have statewide weighted data from the secondary school principals and lead health education teachers. HIDOE has conducted the YRBS every two years in the odd-numbered calendar years since 1991. With the financial and technical support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the HIDOE has been able to obtain weighted data for the YRBS since 2005 and the Profiles since 2006. Should this project proposal be funded, Hawaii will continue to have weighted data for the next five years to support health and physical education program improvement.
