  6. 6. Three to Succeed Fairfax County 2013 Youth Survey
  7. 7. Fairfax County 2013 Youth Survey 7 Three to Succeed The Three to Succeed concept is based on the youth survey analysis that shows how just having three assets (or strengths) dramatically reduces risk behaviors and promotes thriving youth. Assets are strengths in young people, their families, schools and communities that help them thrive in health, in school and daily life, and in a safe environment. The more assets an individual has in their lives, the fewer risk behaviors are reported.

Cross-tabulations of data do not imply cause and effect. 24
  25. 25. Fairfax County 2013 Youth Survey 25 Correlation Data • 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 do NOT show if substance use causes depression or if depression leads to substance use. 25
