Illinois Youth Survey

The IYS is a statewide student survey on substance abuse and related issues. It is conducted through schools with grade levels 8, 10, and 12 every even year in the spring. With the funding of the Illinois Department of Human Services, the Center for Prevention Research and Development (CPRD) at the University of Illinois now coordinates the survey at no charge to schools throughout the state.

The data collected through the IYS or any group survey depends on widespread participation. The higher percentage of students who participate, the more accurate results for the school will be. Improved knowledge helps schools provide more effective solutions to prevent youth substance use and related problems.
