CRDG continues to work with the Hawai‘i Departments of Education (DOE) and Health (DOH) to monitor healthrisk behaviors among Hawai‘i’s student population. This year, results of the 2005 version of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS), with Hawai‘ispecific modifications, were compiled and reported. This marks the seventh YRBS that CRDG has conducted. Twenty-three middle schools and twenty-three high schools in Hawai‘i participated in the YRBS, but the results are generalizable to all sixth through twelfth grade Hawai‘i public school students. The DOE, DOH, University of Hawai’i, and other agencies use the results of the ongoing studies in a variety of ways including identifying focus areas for curriculum development, training teachers, and planning for new programs, prevention efforts, and funding.
