Key findings from the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) Survey



Based on a survey conducted in 2005/2006 on 204 000 young people (11, 13, and 15 years old) in 41 countries and regions across Europe and in North America, this fourth HBSC international report provides the latest evidence on the health and health-related behaviour, and their social contexts, of young people in industrialized nations. This new report – the most comprehensive to date – highlights where inequalities exist in aspects of young people’s health and well-being, encompassing gender, age and geographic and socioeconomic dimensions of health.
