The Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS) collects health information biennially, every odd year, from Colorado public school students. A unified version was launched in 2013 that consolidated multiple needs for youth health data. The unified HKCS is sponsored by three state agencies* and allows for both state and regional-level estimates, while reducing student-survey requests to schools. Regional estimates are available by health statistics regions.
Recruitment for the 2015 administration will begin soon. ***GREAT NEWS*** Beginning in 2015, even if a school is not selected in the 2015 state sample, they can still participate at no cost! Please contact Hillary Anderson HILLARY.ANDERSON@UCDENVER.EDU to discuss survey details.
