ABSTRACT

Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance: National Alternative High School Youth Risk Behavior Survey - United States, 1998   [open pdf - 460KB]

"Alternative high schools serve approximately 280,000 students nationwide who are at high risk for failing or dropping out of regular high school or who have been expelled from regular high school because of illegal activity or behavioral problems. Such settings provide important opportunities for delivering health promotion education and services to these youth and young adults. However, before this survey, the prevalence of health-risk behaviors among students attending alternative high schools nationwide was unknown."
