What are 18-25 year olds in Kansas saying?

The Kansas Young Adult Survey (KYAS) is administered every other year to the hard-to-reach population of young adults aged 18-25 both in college and not in college. The survey began in 2017 and asks about health, mental health, stress, substance use, and driving under the influence of various substances. This statewide survey provides valuable information needed to monitor behavior and attitudes and to plan for prevention. Many of the survey’s questions follow those of the Kansas Communities That Care Student Survey which allows the state to continue to monitor and understand substance use and risk patterns beyond K-12 and into adulthood.
