The Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) and the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (NDHHS) coordinate the administration of the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS), Youth Tobacco Survey (YTS), and Nebraska Risk and Protective Factor Student Survey (NRPFSS).  The Student Health And Risk Prevention (SHARP) Surveillance System is the umbrella uniting these three surveys. All three surveys are administered in the fall of odd calendar years. The Bureau of Sociological Research (BOSR) manages these surveys on behalf of NDE and NDHHS. The table below provides links to a variety of information regarding SHARP as well as the three surveys that fall under the SHARP umbrella.

The next SHARP administration is scheduled for fall of 2023.
