Health Behaviour in School-Aged Children study (HBSC) report

Health Behaviour in School-Aged Children study (HBSC) report

HBSC is the longest running international study focusing on the health behaviours and social context of young people.

This report presents the findings for England from the 2014 Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) World Health Organization (WHO) collaborative study. It provides an up to date view of adolescent health and well-being in England, and provides an overview of trends in these areas spanning more than a decade (2002-2014).

HBSC continues to provide evidence on young people’s lives and the broad determinants of their health and well-being, including their experiences of friendships, school, family, and community life. In addition, this report also presents new measures that are increasingly being seen as influential health determinants and behaviours for the current generation of young people, including sleep, self-harm, health service use, love and relationships, and spirituality.
