HBSC Spain publishes: Benefits of the associative context in the leisure activities of Spanish adolescents

Given the shortage of studies addressing the keys for health of practising leisure activities during adolescence, it is considered necessary to analyse this issue in depth. This research is part of the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children's study (HBSC-2006). The data presented are a sample of 22,811 Spanish adolescents from 11 to 18 years. Through significance tests, effect sizes, cluster analysis and adjusted residuals, we obtained relevant information about the health profits of leisure conducted within an association, as well as practical implications for promotion, that were focused on differences by age, sex and region.
