The Minnesota Student Survey (MSS) provides a comprehensive picture of Minnesota youth by asking questions about school, activities, and health. It asks specifically about behaviors that put young people at risk such as alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse; violence; and sexual activity. The survey also asks adolescents' perspectives on the positive and negative aspects of their lives. Responses to these questions can be used by educators, parents, communities, and youth themselves to identify the strengths of young people and to respond to their needs and concerns.
The most recent MSS was conducted in spring 2007. Click on the links below to view the results for Bloomington and others across the state and county.
