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.
