OHT 2005 County and SDA data
Description
 

Oregon Healthy Teens (OHT) is Oregon’s effort to monitor the health and well-being of adolescents. One goal of this collaborative project is to provide county-level information for communities to use in identifying key issues of concern, and in planning and evaluating efforts to improve outcomes for young people. The tables contain the results of all questions asked on the survey.  (See the main OHT 2005 data page to view/download a copy of the survey questionnaire.)  Finally, the left column under each grade indicates the number of surveys from that county and grade.

The tables below are from a random sample of districts and schools within each county.  (See the  OHT 2005 methodology section for more information on the sampling process.)  Oregon Healthy Teens has a high participation rate from districts and schools so the estimates below are generally good representations of the 8th and 11th grade students in each county.  However in two counties, Marion and Washington, districts that represent a majority of the counties' students declined to participate.  Because a large proportion of students were not sampled, it is uncertain whether our estimates accurately represent all 8th and 11th grade students in those two counties.

 
In some locations, the number of students and/or the number of schools was too small to report county level information.  Also, some counties had no schools that participated.  For this reason, counties were grouped into Service Delivery Areas of the Department of Human Services, or to slightly larger groupings where necessary, to ensure that the data more accurately represent the youth of the area.
 

We urge county health agencies, community planning groups, and schools to participate in Oregon Healthy Teens, so that they can use the information to develop and support activities and environments that encourage healthy behaviors and healthy lives.
