The View all responses for one location section allows you to select a desired location and view all the responses for the selected location.
You can select a location in three ways:
The View one question for all locations section allows you to view results for one question for all states and locations that have data available for that question. You can thenselect a health topic and select a response for the selected health topic.
Note: When you select to view data from GSHS, the system displays the health topics available for the World Health Organization (WHO) regions in GSHS.
The YRBSS Analysis Tool allows you to explore YRBSS and Global School-based Health Survey data in more detail by conducting cross tabulation analyses that compare data for two variables, with the option of stratifying the results by year, site, demographic variables or sexual orientation.
To start a cross tabulation, click the Cross Tabulation button at the bottom of the section panel.
