The Iowa Youth Survey Trend Report provides a graphic, summary, descriptive profile of changes in the youth development related needs of Iowa's adolescents over time. These data help assess changes in the relative strengths and weaknesses of our schools, families, communities and adolescents from the perspective of those students enrolled in 6th, 8th and 11th grade, as well as those age 14 to 18 enrolled in alternative school programs.

Analyses in these reports are based on constructs included in the Iowa Youth Development Results Framework. These constructs are the product of an interactive process that began with a committee of State planners identifying hypothetical constructs and accompanying measures derived from the youth survey. Additional theoretical consideration and empirical testing resulted in a youth development model with core youth development constructs organized in key domains. Please refer to the individual trend reports for a description of these constructs and domains.
