2015 Cuyahoga County YRBS High School Results

The overall response rate (54.4%) did not reach the standard of 60%, which allows for the data to be considered representative of all students, even those that did not complete the survey. However, the data were weighted to the population of 9th through 12th grade students in Cuyahoga County. A weight was applied to each record to adjust for student non response and the distribution of students by grade, gender, race/ethnicity, and geographic region within Cuyahoga County. The stability of the data should be considered, given the lower than required overall response rate, and results should be interpreted with caution.
