  • Questions on the perceived risk and wrongness of using heroin and methamphetamines have been added.
  • The survey now contains questions on how students acquired marijuana.
  • There are new response options for how students acquired alcohol.

For the 6th grade survey, all questions have remained the same.

About the Survey

The Indiana Youth Survey has been serving Indiana schools and communities since 1991. The survey is administered in the spring of even-numbered years, free of charge, in any Indiana school that wishes to participate. The self-report survey asks students in grades 6-12 a variety of questions about substance use, mental health, gambling, and potential risk and protective factors for these behaviors.
