The Youth Health Survey 2012 was implemented in schools across Manitoba during the 2012/2013 school year. All grades 7 to 12 students attending schools were invited to participate in the survey and over 64,000 students completed the survey.

This cycle of the Youth Health Survey included an on-line survey that was completed by school administrators in participating schools. This survey obtains information on elements of the school environment that also affect the health of our students.

Partners in Planning for Healthy Living has developed a briefing note highlighting the Youth Health Survey.

We have now posted the 2012 Youth Health Survey – A, Youth Health Survey – B, Youth Health Survey – C and YHS – Administrators Survey.
