Youth Alcohol, Marijuana, Prescription Drug and Other Drug Data


Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS)

The Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS) collects self-reported health information from middle and high school students in Colorado. The survey is administered every other year to students across the state. The survey covers alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use as well as physical and mental health topics.

The primary use of the data is to identify health priorities in order to better implement school- and community-based strategies to improve and maintain the health of youth in Colorado.

HKCS is supported by Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), Colorado Department of Education (CDE), and Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS).
