December 2014: More 2013 Minnesota Student Survey Data Added

Social Support

Data on youth reporting their parents, friends, and community members care about them "quite a bit" or "very much" have been added. Watch for a SUMN fact sheet, in development, on the association between social support and behavioral health!

Perceived Peer Use

Students tend to think that a greater percentage of their peers are using substances than actually do; further, believing that most students use can be a risk factor. New data have been posted on students' perceptions of peer use of tobacco and marijuana.

Adverse Childhood Experiences

Last month we posted 2013 data on students reporting: household alcohol problems, household drug use, physical abuse, verbal abuse, and parent/caregiver incarceration. Just added are data on household domestic abuse, and child sexual abuse.

Accessing MSS Data

Visitors can search MSS data using three different datasets. Once you select an MSS indicator using Data by Topic, the toolbar at the top contains a drop-down menu labeled dataset. MSS:New Set will provide 2013 data for 5th, 8th, 9th, and 11th graders, MSS:9th Grade Trend will show multiple years of data for only 9th graders, MSS:Original will provide MSS data from 1995 to 2010 for 6th, 9th, and 12th graders. New in 2013, state-level data are searchable by sexual orientation.
