For sample persons age 12 to 21, LIFEGARDYR reports how many times in the past 12 months he or she went swimming (in a pool, lake, or ocean) with an adult or lifeguard present. Persons who didn't do this activity could indicate that the question did not apply to them.
LIFEGARDYR is part of the 1992 Youth Risk Behavior Supplement, sponsored by the Division of Adolescent and School Health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
According to the survey description, this supplement was part of the Youth Risk Surveillance System that was developed to monitor the major risk behaviors of American youth. Sample youth responded for themselves. They listened to taped interview questions and recorded their responses on paper, which were then returned to the interviewers in sealed envelopes.
