The objectives of the international Health behaviour in school-aged children study, in which Wales has participated for 30 years, include:
- to provide an-in depth understanding of young people’s health and wellbeing, including the social determinants of health
- to inform policy and practice to improve young people’s lives
- to disseminate findings to various groups, for example Welsh Government policy makers, local government, the NHS, teachers, parents, young people and researchers
- to initiate and sustain national and international research on health behaviours and the social context of health among young people.
In 2013/14 some 9,000 young people in secondary schools across Wales (school years seven to 11) participated in the study. As well as presenting the most recently collected 2013/14 data, historical trends are also provided for a number of indicators, going back to 1985/86 in a number of cases. It is anticipated that further publications will follow.
