Newburyport Youth Data Packet

Every two years all youth in grades 6-12 are surveyed to get a sense of the strengths and needs of our young people. This survey includes a measure of the 40 Developmental Assets (protective factors) as well as questions about risky behaviors such as alcohol or drug use and time spent watching screens. There are also questions about stress, anxiety and mental health. This data gives us a picture of the highest needs of our young people and programming is built to support those needs. This packet includes the results from the 2019 administration of this survey. We feel it is important for everyone in the community to have access to this data and join in the conversation about how we can support our youth and families.
