Teen Driver Background
The National Young Driver Survey (NYDS) was administered in 68 randomly selected high schools across the country that agreed to participate. A total sample of 5,665 students in 9th, 10th, and 11th grades is representative of all 10.6 million public high school students in the US, as you can see from these demographic characteristics.
