Summary

An 84-item multiple choice Youth Risk Behavior Survey was administered to 2,092 students in 62 public high schools in New Hampshire during the spring of 1995. The survey covered behaviors in six categories: (1) behaviors that result in unintentional or intentional injuries; (2) tobacco use; (3) alcohol and other drug use; (4) sexual behaviors that result in sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies; (5) dietary behaviors; and (6) physical activity and exercise. The survey found, among other things, that: 23.8 percent of the students never or rarely wore a seat belt when riding in a car; 5.3 percent had carried a gun on one or more of the past 30 days; 26 percent had seriously considered attempting suicide during the past 12 months; 36 percent has smoked cigarettes on one or more of the past 30 days; 53 percent had at least one drink of alcohol on one or more of the past 30 days; 27.7 percent had used marijuana on one or more of the past 30 days; 46.4 percent stated that they had had sexual intercourse; and 66.1 percent exercised or participated in sports on a regular basis.
