Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey
Florida Youth Survey Coordinator
The Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey is a collaborative effort between the Florida departments of Health, Education, and Children and Families. It is based on the "Communities That Care" survey, assessing risk and protective factors for substance abuse, in addition to substance abuse prevalence. The survey was first administered to Florida's middle and high school students during the 1999-2000 school year, and is repeated in the spring, annually. In the spring of even years, the survey is administered simultaneously with the Florida Youth Tobacco Survey, sampling enough students to generate data applicable at the county and DCF district level.
