Data on Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug Use Now Posted
for School Districts Statewide
This week, kidsdata.org’s statewide expansion continues with the addition of the most recently available student-reported data on alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use for school districts and counties across California. These data come from the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS), a statewide survey of students that was developed and is administered by WestEd for the California Department of Education.
Kidsdata.org is a public service, sponsored by the Lucile
Packard Foundation for Children’s Health. These newly
added data, which are available by grade level, gender, and
students’ feelings of connectedness to school, will be
valuable for reports, presentations, proposals, advocacy work,
program planning, and other efforts. Data on more topics will
in over the next several months.
