The 2009 South Carolina middle school questionnaire consisted of fifty core CDC questions and thirteen additional state items, for a total of sixty-three multiple-choice questions. In addition to basic questions concerning grade level, ethnicity, gender, and age, the survey instrument contained items designed to assess the prevalence of risk-taking behaviors that are known to be the most frequent causes of social problems, illnesses, and premature deaths among young people: the use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs; physical inactivity; poor eating habits; behaviors that result in intentional and unintentional injuries; and behaviors that increase the risk of sexually transmitted diseases and unintended pregnancies.
