In 2017/18, more than 100,000 young people in years 7 to 11 of secondary schools across Wales took part in the Student Health and Well-being Survey.
This round incorporated the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) survey. The survey was administered by schools themselves and students completed the survey electronically.
The survey provides in-depth understanding of the health and wellbeing of young people, including the whole population and subgroups of the population, such as looked-after children.
The content includes:
- general health and wellbeing
- school life
- family life and friendships
- smoking, drinking and drug-taking
