Oregon’s 2010 student survey reached over 52,000 youth in grades 6, 8 and 11; this covered 35 counties and 6 tribes. The survey results, questions and background are posted at http://www.oregon.gov/DHS/addiction/student-wellness/index.shtml. In addition to the overall state data, there are individual county and other reports available. After the overall results were disseminated, we asked for special crosstabulations between youth gambling and other behaviors and those results are in the slides which follow. These data are not routinely included in the posted reports, so we rely on you at the local level to disseminate this important information on youth gambling.
