*States, large urban school districts, and territories listed above had weighted data for both the 2013 YRBS and 2012 Profiles. This means that for YRBS, the site achieved at least a 60% overall response rate. For Profiles, the site achieved at least a 70% school response rate. With weighted data, it is possible to say, for example, "X% of high school students in our state smoked cigarettes during the past month and X% of middle schools and high schools in our state taught tobacco use prevention education."
