The NJDOE was unable to obtain the number of student responses needed to reach the 60% response rate required by the CDC to be able to weight the data to be representative of the New Jersey high school student population. National results are available on the CDC website.

Percentages shown for middle school students in the tables and charts may differ from percentages shown in the “Summary” or “Full Report”. Because response rates for the Middle School Survey did not meet the 60% threshold set by CDC, percentages in the tables and charts produced by CDC are presented in their unweighted form. However, a weighting procedure using statewide demographic data of the middle school population (with regard to grade, race, ethnicity and gender) was used to adjust the percentages subsequently reported in the “Summary” and “Full Report”.
