Query Builder for Alaska's Youth Risk Behavior Survey - Local (YRBS) Query Module - Felt Sad or Hopeless Almost Every Day For 2+ Weeks in a Row in Past Year

Overview

The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) data are maintained by the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, Section of Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. The Alaska YRBS is a joint project between the Department of Education and Early Development and the Department of Health and Social Services, in cooperation with the CDC. The YRBS asks students to self-report health behaviors across a range of areas that directly lead to morbidity and mortality among youth and adults.

The data and information provided through the IBIS-PH Query System are intended to support any individuals or entities engaged in activities designed solely to enhance the well-being of a specific community, which may include the State.

Other uses are not permissible.

As an IBIS-PH Query System user, I AGREE TO:
  1. Use the data for statistical reporting and analysis only.
  2. Avoid any attempt to identify or contact individual(s) represented in the IBIS-PH query system data.
  3. Avoid disclosure or use of the identity of any individual(s) discovered inadvertently.
  4. Avoid linkage of IBIS-PH query system data with other data that, after linkage, might allow identification of an individual represented in the IBIS-PH query system data.
  5. Use appropriate safeguards to prevent the inappropriate use or disclosure of individual(s) represented in the data, including when disclosing IBIS-PH Query System data to others.
  6. Report IMMEDIATELY any inadvertent or intentional identity disclosures or violations of this agreement of which I become aware to the Director of the Center for Public Health Data, Department of Health.

I understand that failure to adhere to the above stated agreement items will result in loss of access to DOH Internet databases, and I may be subject to legal penalties. Any use, release, or publication of health data contrary to the provisions stated is a class B misdemeanor, with subsequent violations being class A misdemeanors punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 per offense (Chapter 23, Title 26, Code Annotated). If I am a state government employee, this may be grounds for immediate dismissal.
