Definition and Source



Data is pulled from the Wyoming Prevention Needs Assessment (PNA) Survey. The PNA survey asks respondents: "During the past 12 months, have you talked with at least one of your parents about the dangers of tobacco, alcohol, or drug use?”

These results represent the combined results for all 6th-, 8th-, 10th-, and 12th-grade students. In different survey years, some school districts and schools refused to participate or choose to not survey some of their grade levels (indicated by "N.A." in the tables).

The March 2020 school closures for COVID-19 mitigation efforts interrupted data collection, resulting in lower response rates and less participation than typical survey years. The 2020 survey results are unweighted. Users should be cautious when making comparisons between 2020 and previous survey years.
