About the Student Health Survey

Oregon's Student Health Survey (SHS) is a collaborative effort with the Oregon Department of Education to improve the health and well-being of all Oregon students to help them succeed. The SHS is a comprehensive, school-based, anonymous and voluntary health survey of 6th, 8th and 11th graders. It is a key part of statewide efforts to help local schools and communities ensure that all Oregon youth are healthy and successful learners.

The SHS is designed to address:

  • Student health and safety
  • Student mental and behavioral health
  • School climate and culture
  • The impact of COVID-19

Youth Data Council

The Youth Data Council (YDC) is a new group forming to provide recommendations to OHA and ODE around survey design, analysis, interpretation and reporting of Student Health Survey results.

Previous Student Health Data

Prior to 2020, student health data was collected through the Oregon Healthy Teens Survey, the Student Wellness Survey and the Youth Risk Behavior Survey. For previous data from these surveys, visit the links below. Going forward, these surveys are replaced by the Student Health Survey.

Oregon Healthy Teens (OHT) was an anonymous and voluntary research-based survey, conducted among 8th and 11th graders statewide from 2001 to 2019. The OHT survey incorporated two youth surveys that preceded it, the YRBS and the Student Drug Use Survey.

The Student Wellness Survey was introduced in 2010 to assess school climate, positive youth development and the behavioral health of Oregon youth. It was an anonymous survey of students in grades 6, 8 and 11. The last year the SWS was conducted was 2018.

The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) is an epidemiologic surveillance system that was established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to monitor the prevalence of youth behaviors that most influence health. 

The 1999 national school-based Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) was one component of the YRBSS.
