Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) - Statewide Query Module Configuration Selection

About the Alaska Statewide Alternative High School YRBS Dataset

    This dataset provides representative statewide data for Alaska alternative high school students and should be used when the user wants to estimate the statewide prevalence of risk or protective behaviors among Alaska alternative high school students. The statewide alternative high school dataset includes students in public alternative high schools with enrollments of at least 10 students (excluding traditional, boarding, correspondence, home study, and correctional schools). Alternative schools are identified by the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development as serving at-risk students who benefit from nontraditional school settings and programs.

Sampling, Weighting, and Analysis

    The Alaska statewide alternative high school sample is a census sample design, which allows every student in every alternative high school to participate in the survey. The statewide alternative high school results are weighted by grade, sex, and race/ethnicity. Logit confidence limits are generated assuming complex sampling with replacement.
