Access to Health Risk Behavior in the United States

"How often do we drink alcohol? How many of us wear seat belts and get our blood pressure tested? How many teens used a condom the last time they had sex? Or even had sex?

Access to Health Risk Behavior in the United States: A State-by-State Look at Teens and Adults details Americans' answers to questions about their health, all cross-tabulated by age, education, income, and sex—the demographic factors known to be related to health risk behavior.

Some of the many topics covered in the book's section on adults include weight, women's health, physical activity, seat belt use, health insurance coverage, alcohol consumption, high blood pressure, flu shots, etc.

The book's section on 9th to 12th graders brings you their answers to questions about drinking and driving, carrying weapons to school, physical fights, suicide attempts, cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, drug use, sexual activity and condom use, weight and exercise, and other facets of daily life that affect their long-term health. Best of all, the answers to many of these questions are compared over time.

Based on two important surveys—the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System and the Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System—this book advances the discussion of important public policy issues by providing improved access to the data needed to better understand them."
