Youth Risk Behavior Survey (OYRBS)
Marshfield Clinic Health System and Marshfield Area Coalition for Youth have partnered with Wood County Health Department and Marshfield public and private schools since 2006 to administer the YRBS to students in grades 8, 10 and 12. The survey is voluntary and asks students about their health behaviors related to safety, violence, bullying, suicide/self-harm, substance use, lifestyle habits, eating habits, physical activity and sexual health. The information collected is anonymous, self-reported data that is screened to ensure fidelity (i.e. if a student was inconsistent or obviously exaggerated their responses, the survey is thrown out).
