Abstract

HEALTH BEHAVIOUR IN SCHOOL-AGED CHILDREN (HBSC) STUDY
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. Full contact details can be found on the HBSC web site (1). HBSC uses findings at national and international levels:
• to gain new insight into young people’s health and well-being
• to understand the social determinants of health
• inform policy and practice to improve young people’s lives.
The first HBSC survey was conducted in 1983/1984 in five countries. The study has grown to include 43 countries and regions across Europe and North America. The table shows the growth in the international network over the eight survey rounds.
