! Interpret data with caution. The coefficient of variation (CV) for this estimate is between 30 and 50 percent.
NOTE: The term "anywhere" is not used in the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) questionnaire; students are simply asked how many days during the previous 30 days they had at least one drink of alcohol. In the question that asks students about drinking alcohol at school, "on school property" was not defined for survey respondents. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
