All "Local Youth Data" was taken from CTC Youth Surveys administered in local schools in each county. This survey is evidence-based and used to measure changes in youth behavior over time. Our coalitions provide and pay for the survey. We hold the surveys every two years with 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th graders, offering a changing snapshot of our community, along with new and persistent risk or protective factors.
