Key findings from the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study: international report from the 2009/2010 survey
This report summarizes findings from the most recent HBSC survey. The survey covered 39 countries and regions across Europe and North America, examined more than 60 topics and involved over 200 000 children and young people.
HBSC, a WHO collaborative cross-national study, collects data on 11-, 13- and 15-year-old boys’ and girls’ health and well-being, social environments and health behaviours every four years. The international report, which is written and produced by the HBSC Research Network and is published by the WHO Regional Office for Europe, presents the world’s most comprehensive picture of young people’s health and well-being.
