Malden Youth Risk Behavior Survey

Client: Malden Public Schools
Topic Area: Children, youth, and families
Services: Assessment and Planning, Data Services

The Malden Public Schools has worked with ICH since 2012 to conduct a public health survey about risk behaviors (the Youth Risk Behavior Survey) with middle and high school students. ICH has supported survey development and administration, analyzed responses, and produced comprehensive reports and presentations tailored to various audiences. The concerns, trends, and priorities identified through the survey have been used to educate parents and staff, and have been leveraged by the Malden Public Schools to obtain more funding for responsive youth programming.
