  8. 8. Survey Results Fairfax County Youth Survey
  9. 9. Correlation Data• Cross-tabulations are when we look at the way students responded to multiple questions, for example when we look at results by demographics such as symptoms of depression by gender or the cross of two experiences such as symptoms of depression by substance use.• Cross-tabulations of data do not imply cause and effect.• The results do not imply that being a certain gender or using substances causes depression. The data indicate there is a correlation of the female gender reporting higher prevalence of reported depressive symptoms.• Similarly, youth who use substances are more likely to report symptoms of depression, but the results cannot say whether the substance use causes depression or whether depression leads to substance use. 9 Fairfax County Youth Survey
