Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS)

Community Epidemiology & Program Evaluation Group

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 and reports are available at​

The 2015 HKCS administration has concluded.  Thank you to all who participated! Data from the 2015 HKCS administration is now available.  Please contact the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey team at for further details.
