New Survey Suggests Teens Taking Fewer Risks Than 20 Years Ago

 

Every two years for the past 20 years, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has conducted a Youth Risk Behavior Survey – asking high school kids questions on a variety of topics including alcohol and other drug use, tobacco use, sexual behavior, suicide and weight and physical activity.

Results from the most recent survey were released this week and the news looks positive. High school kids are drinking and smoking less, wearing their seatbelts more often and abstaining longer from sexual intercourse.

Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski says we may be reaping the long term impact of programs like DARE and Click-It or Ticket.

However, Joski says this is not the time to get complacent.

The survey reported that the percentage of teens who have tried marijuana or used it during the past 30 days is unchanged over 20 years.
