Hawai‘i Youth Risk Behavior Survey
E Komo Mai

Kamehameha Schools is pleased to make tabulations of the Hawai‘i Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) results for Native Hawaiian students available for public use. The YRBS is a component of the Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System which was developed in 1990 to monitor health risk behaviors that comprise the leading causes of death, disability, and social problems among youth and adults in the United States. The Survey is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Hawai‘i State Department of Health and is conducted at two-year intervals.

In Hawai‘i, survey coordination is provided by the Program Research and Evaluation Office of the Curriculum Research & Development Group of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa under contract from the Hawai‘i State Departments of Education and Health. The special tabulations for Native Hawaiian students for surveys conducted between 1997 and 2009 were prepared by the Program Research and Evaluation Office with funding from Kamehameha Schools. The results for the 2011 survey were provided by the Department of Health's Hawai`i Health Data Warehouse.

It is important to note that statistics for Native Hawaiian students presented here are calculated for ALL students who self-identified as Native Hawaiian, including students who also selected other ethnic identities (e.g., Hawaiian and Chinese). The statistics for Native Hawaiian students presented on the Hawai`i Health Data Warehouse site follow the Center for Disease Control reporting guidelines and include only those students who self-identified SOLELY as Native Hawaiian.

Results for 1997, 1999, and 2001 are presented in one set of tables to facilitate the identification of trends over time.
