More data on this topic can be found using the Childhood Understanding Behaviors Survey Data Visualization Tool Version 1.5.2: Alaska Department of Health, Division of Public Health, Section of Women's, Children's, and Family Health; accessed on: 2022-12-27.


Two years of data were combined to minimize the unreliability of measurement due to the small number of actual events. The reported values are averages across two years.  For example, we report the average value across the years 2015 and 2016.

The percentages reported above have been produced by weighting the survey results so that estimates better represent the Alaska population.
