South Dakota parents, educators and health officials are facing a four-year gap in data about risky youth behaviors related to drinking and drug use, sexual activity, and eating habits. The lack of information about what young people are actually doing can impair efforts at the state and local levels to prevent dangerous or unhealthy behavoirs.

Dr. Joshua Clayton is the South Dakota State Epidemiologist. He joins In The Moment to explain the problem.
