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

About the Alaska Statewide Traditional High School YRBS Dataset

    This dataset provides representative statewide data for Alaska traditional high school students and should be used when the user wants to estimate the statewide prevalence of risk or protective behaviors among Alaska traditional high school students. The statewide traditional high school dataset includes students in public traditional high schools with enrollments of at least 10 students (excluding boarding, correspondence, home study, alternative, and correctional schools).

Sampling, Weighting, and Analysis

    Schools are selected for the Alaska statewide traditional high school sample using a two-stage, cluster sample design. In the first stage, schools are selected with a probability proportional to school enrollment size. In the second stage, classes within each school are randomly selected. The statewide traditional high school results are weighted by grade, sex, and race/ethnicity. Logit confidence limits are generated assuming complex sampling with replacement.
