New Jersey Department of Human Services Risk and Protective Factor Survey | 2006 – Ongoing
The New Jersey Middle School Risk and Protective Factor Survey is a student health survey sponsored by NJDHS. It is designed to systematically collect data on risk and protective behaviors among New Jersey youth. The survey questionnaire includes risk and protective items that show the strongest correlations to drug use, including feelings about school and their neighborhood; self-reported and peer use of tobacco, drugs, and alcohol; and the availability of such substances. Survey information is used to create tailored prevention programs for New Jersey’s youth population and complete the federal application for block grant funding. The BCSR is responsible for all data collection and analysis efforts.
