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.
