OBJECTIVES: To explore the factor structure and psychometric properties of data collected with the Adolescent Health Risk Behavior Survey (AHRBS) instrument. METHODS: Measures of the AHRBS instrument were tested using statistical analyses to assess validity and reliability of data collected from a sample of 1992 Indiana adolescents. RESULTS: Factor analyses yielded a 13-factor solution with acceptable model fit statistics. Tests of internal consistency reliability for data in instrument scales ranged from 0.455 to 0.916. Measures were consistent across adolescent subdemographic categories. CONCLUSION: The AHRBS instrument is a valuable tool for investigating adolescent drug use.
