The Minnesota Departments of Education, Health, Human Services, and Public Safety are contracting with Texas A&M University’s Public Policy Research Institute and Gibson Consulting to administer the Minnesota Student Survey (MSS) between January and May 2022. The MSS has been the most consistent source of data about the health and well-being of Minnesota’s students for the past 30 years.
This voluntary survey asks students about their activities, opinions, behaviors, and experiences. Students respond to questions on school climate, bullying, out-of-school activities, health and nutrition, emotional and mental health, relationships, substance use, and more. Questions about sexual behaviors are asked only of ninth- and 11th-grade students. All responses are anonymous.
