Second, the overall proportion of students identifying as LGB was small:8. As more data are collected from LGB youths in future cycles of the national YRBS, pooling data across cycles to improve statistical power will be essential for increasing the likelihood of detecting ex;eriences in stratified models. Fourth, by pooling — data, the aOR for the difference between groups on all outcomes might mask heterogeneity over time datiny each subpopulation e.
Finally, three survey measures had relatively large amounts of missing data in forced sex approximately 2, observationssexual dating violence approximately 3, observationsand attempted suicide with oof approximately 4, observations.
Most of these missing data can be attributed to some selected schools administering YRBS questionnaire versions that did not include these questions.

Consequently, not all students in the national sample were given the opportunity to answer these questions and were counted as missing. These findings highlight the continued need for policies and practices within school environments that reduce victimization and bolster the mental health of LGB students.
Substantial evidence exists for the role of antiharassment policies, gay-straight alliances or other student-led clubs designed to support sexual minority studentsand programs aimed at improving staff support of LGB students in improving school environments for these students In addition to in-school programs and policies, schools might consider engagement with community organizations and stakeholders to collaborate on implementation of comprehensive violence and suicide prevention strategies that address a range of risk and protective factors at the individual, relationship, community, and societal levels.
For example, comprehensive approaches to suicide reduction help to prevent suicide risk, support persons at increased risk, prevent reattempts, and help survivors of suicide loss. Furthermore, continued monitoring of these disparities between LGB and heterosexual students over time is needed until these disparities can be eradicated. Corresponding author : Michelle M.
