What is the Idaho Healthy Youth Survey?
The Idaho Healthy Youth Survey (IHYS) is a bi-annual, statewide survey of 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th graders facilitated by the Idaho Office of Drug Policy (ODP).
The Survey is designed to measure the perceptions, opinions, attitudes, and behaviors of Idaho youth related to the use and misuse of alcohol, tobacco, e-cigarettes/vaping, marijuana, prescription medication, and other drugs.
It is modeled after other states’ surveys and refined by the Idaho State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroup, the Idaho Criminal Justice Commission, and multiple community organizations that work with youth in each of the seven Idaho Public Health Districts.
