Arizona Youth Survey
 

The Arizona Youth Survey (AYS) is administered every two years to a statewide sample of 8th, 10th, and 12th grade youth under the direction of the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission Statistical Analysis Center and in partnership with the Arizona State University School of Criminology & Criminal Justice. Based on the nationally recognized Risk and Protective Factor model and the Communities That Care survey (Hawkins et al., 1992), the AYS assesses the prevalence and frequency of youth substance use, gang involvement, and other risky behaviors, and helps stakeholders to better understand the risk and protective factors that are correlated with these behaviors.
 

The Arizona Youth Survey sample encompasses all 15 Arizona counties. From the collected data, individual county results are published in separate reports. To access a 2020 county report, click on the county from the list. Click here to view other SAC publications, including publications on the Arizona Youth Survey.
