Teenager characteristics research

This study's fact sheets present information about the percentages of high school students who engage in certain risk behaviors, along with the status of school health policies and programs designed to address those behaviors. The study debunks some long-held beliefs about teenagers. For example, researchers have found that teens feel vulnerable -- rather than invincible -- and that youths today are overall better behaved than teenagers have been in the past.
