Service Recipient: Activities directed to families/children/youth

Goal: Increase the percent of high school students wearing seatbelts

Numerator: number of students reporting seatbelt use

Denominator: total number of students responding to this question on YRBS

Significance: Unintentional injuries among children and young adults up to age 24 are a significant cause of premature deaths and serious injuries, many of which have life-altering impacts. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of these injuries; many of these would be mitigated or even prevented if seatbelts were used consistently.

Data Sources and Data Issues: NH YRBS data (https://nccd.cdc.gov/youthonline) YRBS is a self-reported survey and students may respond positively to questions about wearing a seatbelt because there is a law in NH requiring people under 18 to wear seatbelts. School participation in the survey is voluntary, so data is not captured from 100% of NH students. The number of students who do respond is considered high enough to be representative of the state as a whole, but data is not reliable at a sub-state level.

Denominator: Number of adolescents in grades ages 9 through 12

Significance: Motor-vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death and nonfatal injury among Missouri adolescents, resulting in approximately 75 deaths and 2,000 nonfatal injuries each year. Risk for motor-vehicle crashes and resulting injuries and deaths varies, depending on such behaviors as seat belt use or impaired or distracted driving. Improved understanding of adolescents’ transportation risk behaviors can guide prevention efforts. According to the Missouri 2019 Youth Risk Behavior Survey approximately 8.5% of high school students did not always wear a seat belt, 15.8% rode with a drinking driver, 4.2% of students had driven a car after drinking alcohol and 45.8% had texted or e-mailed while driving during the 30 days before the survey. Traffic safety and public health professionals can use these findings to reduce transportation risk behaviors by selecting, implementing, and contextualizing the most appropriate and effective strategies for specific populations and for the environment.

Numerator: Number of students who report feeling comfortable seeking help from 1+ adult if they had an important question affecting their life, according to the Wisconsin YRBSS

Denominator: Number of students who complete the Wisconsin YRBSS

Significance: Students who report feeling comfortable seeking help from 1+ adult if they had an important question affecting their life are associated with decreases in negative mental health concerns, such as isolation, loneliness, depression, self-harm, and suicidal ideation. These mental health concerns are of emphasized concern during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Enhanced protective factors and reduced risk factors are associated with reduced risk of adolescent injury.

Data Sources and Data Issues: Data will be pulled from the YRBSS. Data issues may arise from lack of in person schooling due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Due to the rapidly-evolving nature of school environments in the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic, collection and release of data in upcoming years may be affected.

Denominator: Count

Significance:

Data Sources and Data Issues: Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death and disability among children and adolescents, both in Texas and the United States as a whole. Many aspects of the environment in which children live (physical, social, cultural, economic, etc.) have impacts on injury risk. Both fatal and nonfatal childhood injuries are very costly. In addition to the burden of death and disability, childhood injuries can result in substantial economic costs, including medical costs for the child and lost work days for caregivers. To impact the number of injury-related hospital admissions per population ages birth to 19 years, parents and professionals need to increase their knowledge of the potential risks impacting this population and strategies available to reduce this risk. Providers need tools to approach adolescents about injury risks and consequences in a manner that will yield the highest benefit. This measure will examine the number of individuals who completed injury prevention-related THS-OPE modules.

Service Recipient: Activities directed to families/children/youth

Goal: Increase the percentage of youth reporting a connection to at least one caring adult, as a measure of positive youth development (PYD) and a protective factor against injury.

Numerator: Estimated number of youth in Texas (grades 9-12) reporting a connection to at least one caring adult during a specific year.

Denominator: Total number of youth (grades 9-12) in Texas during a specific year

Significance: Research shows that adolescents who have positive connections to at least one adult in their life have increased protective factors and are less likely to participate in risky behaviors that can lead to injury and death. PYD focuses on the development of relationships with caring adults, supportive relationships with parents, supportive peer networks, promoting positive connections to school, supportive communities, and opportunities to experiment in healthy ways.

Data Sources and Data Issues: Data Source: Texas Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS). Texas YRBSS is a school-based survey of representative samples of 9th through 12th grade students in Texas. The survey monitors priority health risk behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death, disability, and social problems among youth and adults. The YRBSS survey is conducted every two years. Starting with 2017 YRBSS data, this estimate will be the percentage of youth who reported that they either ate dinner at home with parents or guardians 4 of the last 7 days or they felt comfortable seeking help from an adult other than their parents if they had an important question affecting their life. Data Issues: All data collected by YRBSS are self-reported and subject to self-reporting bias. Furthermore, response rates to the YRBSS are lower than ideal and have seen a decline since 2011. YRBSS findings are intended for population surveillance and have only limited generalizability to specific geographic subgroups such as counties or cities. In 2019, Texas YRBSS worked with CDC to utilize available data for results to be considered representative of youth across the state, so 2019 YRBSS data is the baseline to estimate annual objectives. There is also the potential that future YRBSS may not collect information about whether youth ate dinner at home with parents/guardians 4 of the last 7 days due to the states question selection process.
