Iowa youth survey
The Iowa Youth Survey is conducted by the Iowa Department of Public Health’s Division of Behavioral Health in collaboration with the Iowa Department of Human Rights’ Criminal and Juvenile Justice Planning and Statistical Analysis Center.
In the fall of 1999, 2002, 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2021 students in the 6th, 8th, and 11th grades across the state of Iowa answered questions about their attitudes and experiences regarding alcohol and other drug use and violence, and their perceptions of their peer, family, school, and neighborhood/community environments. In 2008 the survey was administered online for the first time.
Iowa Youth Survey reports list responses to every question on the survey, providing total percentages and breakdowns by grade and gender.
2021 Data Reports are currently available on the Iowa Youth Survey website.
Reports are available in the following categories:
- State of Iowa

The Iowa Department of Public Health sends individual district reports directly to districts. For more information, contact Pat McGovern at email@example.com.
