UNDERSTANDING YOUTHFUL RISK TAKING AND DRIVING: DATABASE REPORT. FINAL REPORT

This report catalogs national databases that contain information about adolescents and risk taking behaviors. It contains descriptions of the major areas, unique characteristics, and risk-related aspects of each database. Detailed information is provided concerning data collection procedures, including survey questions, variables, and sampling and data collection methods. Information is also provided as to where to request each database, the accessibility of the data, and the kinds of electronic media available. This report also contains information on databases that states collected on various domains of risk taking behaviors, and, in some cases, protective factors. The state databases were included in this report because a number of the surveys conducted by particular states include a more fine-grained examination of risk taking behaviors than national databases.
