Translation and modifications for Koreans students of the YRBS which was based on the causes of death specific for Korean teenagers were carried out February 2000 and the modified YRBS were administered to students of a male vocational high school(n=113) in a small city near Taegu February 2000. The number of students used at final analysis was 107(response rate 94, 7%).
Percentage of students rarely or never used safety belts was 79.4% and that of students involved in a physical fight was low. About 41.7% of the 12 students who had ever felt sad or hopeless thought seriously about attempting suicide. Lifetime cigarette users were 72.9% and of those current users were 87.1%, frequent users 61.5% and regular users 74.3% while lifetime alcohol users were 84.1% and of those current users were 81.1%, episodic heavy drinkers 63.3%. Thirteen students(12.1%) reported to have sexual intercourse and most of them did not use condoms during last sexual intercourse. About 30% reported to attempt to lose weight and most of the students reported to eat 100% fruit juice, fruits, vegetables, or milk 1-3 times during last one week. More than one third of the students(37.4%) reported to participate in vigorous physical activity and 27.1% in strengthening exercises.
These results suggest that the YRBS could be adapted to Korean high school students and some of risk behaviors be very prevalent in a Korean male vocational high school.
