Maine Integrated Youth Health Survey 

The Maine Integrated Youth Health Survey (MIYHS) was first administered in 2009 and will be offered in February of odd-numbered years. The MIYHS is the result of collaboration between the Maine Department of Health and Human Services and the Maine Department of Education. 

Its purpose is to quantify the health of Kindergarten and Grade 3 students through parent interviews, and the health-related behaviors and attitudes of 5th through 12th graders by direct student survey. Beginning in 2019, the parent interviews were removed and only height, weight, and oral health examinations took place for Kindergarten and Grade 3 students. The MIYHS data on this website has two main portions: 1) Reports and fact sheets that present Maine, County and Public Health District reports (at the "Data Results” and “Fact Sheets” tabs above); and 2) the access-code-protected Local Data with school reports.

For questions about the content of reports or how to access Local Data, please contact Korey Pow at korey.pow@maine.gov.
