Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
From the 2006 School Health Policies and Programs Study:
Now I'd like to ask which health education topics are taught in any of the required courses that we've listed. Please give me the numbers of the topics your school teaches at some time in required courses.
The School Health Policies and Programs Study (SHPPS) is a national survey periodically conducted to assess school health policies and practices at the state, district, school, and classroom levels. SHPPS was most recently conducted in 2006. SHPPS also was conducted in 2000 and 1994; the next SHPPS is planned for 2012.
A school is considered to provide health education on key risk behavior and content areas if they report having required courses on all the topics listed in the question.
