UI Health Data

Data on UI student health behaviors, attitudes and beliefs

Student Health & Wellness has been collecting data on student health interests and behaviors for over 15 years.  We collect anonymous surveys, using a convenience sample of undergraduate academic courses.  Our data collection occurs every other year and the information we gain is used to guide program development and needs assessment efforts. We also compare the data we collect with data collected on UI student health behaviors by other researchers and have found the data trends to be replicated in other findings.

The 2009 data collection resulted in 852 completed surveys with a 95% response rate, the 2011 data collection resulted in 875 completed surveys with a 98% response rate, the 2012 data collection resulted in 882 completed surveys with a 99% response rate, and the 2013 data collection resulted in 930 surveys with a 99% response rate.
