Young Adult Surveys
SAFE also gathers input from the community through community forums, focus groups, surveys, and interviews to help understand community concerns and issues.
In addition to survey information, SAFE uses statistical data kept by a variety of public agencies to help determine its areas of focus.
Data relating to youth substance use, such as school disciplinary actions, juvenile arrests, and alcohol-related injuries and fatalities are contained in the Chesterfield County Youth and Family Indicators Report, published annually by the Chesterfield County Department of Youth Planning and Development.
2022 YAS Survey Results
SAFE asked Chesterfield County residents aged 16 to 25, to share their opinions about alcohol, prescription drug misuse, marijuana use, and heroin use by completing the English or Spanish 2022 Young Adult Survey. SAFE is working to decrease alcohol and drug impaired driving related crashes under our DMV, Virginia Highway Safety Office grant and we will use survey results to evaluate the “DID You Know It’s All Drug Impaired Driving” mass and social media campaigns’ effectiveness.
This survey ran from August 2022 to mid-September 2022, and we received 433 complete English and 142 complete Spanish responses. Thank you to everyone who participated!
We would also like to congratulate Danielle Spinelli for being randomly selected to receive a $50 Visa Gift card for completing the survey.
