These are FLASH format video files, small enough to download from home (if over the phone, eventually!).  You can borrow earphones to listen while playing them in School labs. Double click on the speaker down in the taskbar to remove muting and increase volume. plug the earphone into the green connector on the back of the computer. It uses a mini-stereo plug.

Data for the YRBSS 2001 & 2003 are on this disk, as well as NCHRBS 1995

The videos below are with EXCEL XP and the YRBS 2001 and YRBS 2003 data as indicated. New data is released every two years at the CDC website. There is also a dataset there for the National College Health Risk Behavior (NCHRBS) conducted in 1995.
There may be a new version of the NCHRBS in the near future, so it would be good to check the CDC websites from time to time. Data from adult risk behavior surveys and census data are available at the dataFerret site. For convenience, ASCII data and descriptions available now are linked here and are on this disk so you don't have to download it:
