Healthy Kids Colorado Survey Update

The 2013 Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS) will be implemented between August - December 2013. Several changes and enhancements have been made to the survey. To streamline these efforts, three state agencies, the Colorado Department of Human Services, Colorado Department of Education and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, have formed a Steering Committee and combined funding. The survey changes include the following:
  • Collection of both state and regional data (based on the 21 Health Statistics Regions) at both middle and high school levels
  • Use of the HKCS instrument (a multi‐modular approach) by all state agencies  
  • Input on survey content and methodology from a new Advisory Committee
Please see this overview presentation for more details on the 2013 administration, list of Advisory Committee members and list of the 21 Health Statistics regions. If you have any questions, please contact Amy Dillon at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment at 303-692-2398 or
