The Iowa Youth Survey (IYS) is a collaborative effort conducted by the Iowa Department of Public Health, the Iowa Department of Education, the Office of Drug Control Policy, the Iowa Department of Human Services, and the Division of Criminal and Juvenile Justice Planning in the Department of Human Rights. The Iowa Department of Public Health is the lead agency, and host the main website for the Iowa Youth Survey.
The IYS has been administered in Iowa since 1975 but has undergone significant changes over time. Since 1999, the survey has been administered to almost all of the 6th, 8th, and 11th grade students in the state. As a result, the IYS has become a "census" survey that reflects the perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors of Iowa youth. In 2014, a total of 77,139 student surveys were completed and included in analyses.
