About The Survey
The Youth Survey focuses on family life issues. It is conducted for the benefit of parents, educators, members of the legal and mental health professions. It may be viewed without charge. The sponsor of each month's poll is noted on the results page, along with their web site and our appreciation.
Its mission is also to provide useful information for judges and legislators who make decisions and laws about marriage, divorce and the welfare of children. Young people are welcome to view the results to better understand their peers and parents to better understand their children.
Ideas for questions are recommended by a panel of educators, mental health professionals and parents.
Completed online by 1270 youngsters between the ages of 14 and 18, participants are self-selected from across the US and from the United Kingdom. The survey is also subject to non-sampling error. A growing number of youngsters under the age of 14 are participating in the Youth Survey with their parents' permission.
