Survey shows where youth are at risk

The 2011 results of the South Dakota Youth Risk Behavior Survey, which was given to students in 9-12 grades, were released in early April. Here are some of the findings:

  • 27 percent of students were bullied on school property in the past 12 months
  • 20 percent had been bullied electronically during the past 12 months
  • 18 percent seriously considered attempting suicide in the past 12 months
  • 49 percent were physically active for a total of at least 60 minutes per day during five or more of the past seven days
  • 22 percent wrongly believe smokeless tobacco is safer than cigarettes
  • 26 percent had five or more drinks of alcohol within a couple of hours, on one or more of the past 30 days
  • 24 percent of currently sexually active students, defined as those who’ve had sexual intercourse during the past three months, drank alcohol or used drugs before their last sexual intercourse
