  • Selected state prevalence estimates and confidence intervals
  • National prevalence estimates and confidence intervals
  • Comparisons between the selected state and national data based on t-test analyses

*States listed had weighted data for the 2017 YRBS. This means that the site achieved at least a 60% overall 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.
