Why Is This Important?
The Youth Risk Behavior survey uses a two-stage, stratified random sampling method to identify the sample. The sampling frame includes all students currently enrolled in grades 6-12 in a public school in the state of Hawaii. Two samples are taken: one for middle school (grades 6-8) and one for high school (grades 9-12). Results are weighted by sex, grade, and race/ethnicity to ensure accurate representation of the population
Percent of high school students who have ever been told by a doctor, nurse or other health professional that they had asthma and still have asthma now, based on a series of questions.
