September 2014: Educational Engagement
2013 Minnesota Student Survey Risk and Protective Factors
Data on students reporting they were bullied or harassed weekly or more often has been added to SUMN. Another new addition is the protective factor of higher educational engagement. For each we've created a companion fact sheet on the relationship between the risk/protective factor and substance use: Bullying SUMN Fact Sheet and Educational Engagement SUMN Fact Sheet.
Accessing MSS Data
Visitors can search MSS data using three different datasets. Once you select an MSS indicator using Data by Topic, the toolbar at the top contains a drop-down menu labeled dataset. MSS:New Set will provide 2013 data for 5th, 8th, 9th, and 11th graders, MSS:9th Grade Trend will show multiple years of data for only 9th graders, MSS:Original will provide MSS data from 1995 to 2010 for 6th, 9th, and 12th graders. New in 2013, state-level data are searchable by sexual orientation.
