New 2012 School Health Profiles (Profiles) Products Released

The Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH) has released two 2012 School Health Profiles (Profiles) products on the Profiles web site at www.cdc.gov/schoolhealthprofiles.

The release includes:

* a fact sheet for each state, large urban school district, territory, and tribal government that reports results from the 2012 Profiles on the following topics:

* HIV, other STD, and teen pregnancy prevention

* Chronic disease prevention

* Other selected school health topics

* a PowerPoint presentation that presents state results, by quartiles, on a U.S. map

These products provide an easy way to share Profiles results. The fact sheets allow each state, large urban school district, territory, and tribal government to view their own results and see how they compare to other jurisdictions. The PowerPoint maps provide a visual comparison of states on all key variables.
