Download this publicationThe 2009 Rhode Island Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) Disparities Report, developed by JSI, examines the relationship between seven risk populations and a number of health-risk behaviors. The seven risk populations highlighted in this report include: low-performing students (‘D&F’ grades); females; minorities; bullied students; lesbian, gay, bisexual, or unsure (LGBU) students; students who smoke; and disabled students. Each chapter explores selected measures that highlight disparities in the following five topical areas: mental health; sub-stance use; violence and injury; sexual behavior; and physical activity, diet, and emotional disability.
