Delaware’s Tobacco Prevention and Control Program conducts a Youth Tobacco Survey (YTS) in public middle and high schools on even-numbered years. The study is conducted for the program by the Center for Drug and Alcohol Studies at the University of Delaware. The YTS provides data for planning, implementation, and evaluation of effective programs to prevent and reduce tobacco use in Delaware.
The Youth Tobacco Survey is a cooperative effort of the Delaware Division of Public Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The survey is administered anonymously to a random sample of students from grades 6-12 in all school districts.
Additional data about smoking among public middle and high school students is available from the Delaware Department of Education's Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS).
