Introduction

This report contributes to developing a better understanding of determinants of, and inequalities in, young people’s health by presenting data from the HBSC 2013/2014 survey analysed in four dimensions:

  • age;
  • gender;
  • country/region of residence; and
  • family affluence.

First, however, it describes what is known about the relationship between social determinants and young people’s health and well-being.
