Summary:

The Youth, Education, and Society (YES) study was conducted as part of the Bridging the Gap initiative, a national research project funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation dedicated to improving the understanding of how policies and environmental policies influence diet, physical activity and obesity among youth, as well as youth tobacco use. YES surveyed secondary schools participating in the Monitoring the Future study and a larger supplementary sample of secondary schools. This data collection covers only the latter sample. The YES Supplement consists of annual surveys of school administrators in representative samples of middle schools and high schools, beginning with the 2006-2007 school year and ending with the 2013-2014 school year. Topics covered by the YES Supplement questionnaire include school characteristics, school nutrition and physical education policies, school lunch programs, and school vending machines, stores and snack bars.

Scope of Study

Subject Terms:    diet, health policy, high schools, middle schools, nutrition, obesity, physical education, physical fitness

Geographic Coverage:    United States

Time Period:   

  • 2006--2014

Universe:    Public middle schools and high schools in the 48 coterminous states. To be eligible, schools were required to have a target-grade enrollment of at least 20 students for the 8th grade and 25 students for the 10th or 12th grade, and to be a regular school, as opposed to a vocational school, home school coordinating office or alternative school.

Data Type(s):    survey data

Data Collection Notes:

More information about Bridging the Gap is available on the BTG Website.

Methodology

Sample:    The sampling frame was developed using the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) Common Core of Data. The first stage of sampling was at the school district level with probability proportionate to size; thereafter, middle schools and high schools were selected from within those districts based on probability proportionate to size, with the target grade enrollment as the measure of size. Separate samples were drawn for target grades 8, 10 and 12. Schools were invited to participate for three years.

Mode of Data Collection:    mail questionnaire

Extent of Processing:   ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:

  • Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
