Do you think kids of different races/ethnicities behave similarly?

There are two major youth survey data sources in the United States that provide information that might answer this question.

The Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) monitors a wide range of priority health risk behaviors among representative samples of high school students at the national, state, and local levels.

The Monitoring the Future (MTF) an ongoing study of the behaviors, attitudes, and values of American students and young adults funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
