2013 Healthy Kids Colorado Survey Sexual Health Fact Sheet
In the fall of 2013, over 25,000 students in public high schools and middle schools throughout Colorado completed the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS). The survey includes similar questions used for the national Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance (YRBS) distributed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One of the primary ways Colorado Youth Matter achieves its mission to actively engage Colorado communities to promote healthy sexual development of youth is by disseminating research, such as this sexual health data from the HKCS, to build data-driven leadership and inform programmatic decision-making.
