Abstract: The purpose of the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) is to obtain information about the amount and distribution of illness, its effects in terms of disability and chronic impairments, and the kinds of health services people receive. The Youth Risk Behavior Survey was conducted as a follow-back to the 1992 National Health Interview Survey. Sponsored by the Division of Adolescent and School Health, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, it is a part of a larger system of research, the Youth Risk Surveillance System, developed to monitor the major risk behaviors of American youth. The Youth Risk Behavior Supplement includes variables from the NHIS core Person File (see NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY, 1992 [ICPSR 6343]), including sex, age, race, marital status, veteran status, education, income, industry and occupation codes, and limits on activity. Variables unique to this supplement include questions on injury risks, physical fights, weapons use, cigarette smoking, chewing tobacco, alcohol and illegal drug use, AIDS/HIV education, diet and nutrition, physical activities, stays away from home, and sexual behaviors.
