Data visualisation: Perceived peer support

This visualisation allows you to explore HBSC's data for young people who report that their classmates are kind and helpful.

Childhood and adolescence are crucial periods in the life course which fundamentally influence all developmental aspects of life. During these important periods, thousands of hours are spent at school and with classmates.

The level of perceived support from classmates is linked to school satisfaction and motivation, school-related stress and bullying. A low level of support is related to health complaints such as headaches, abdominal pain, depressed mood, and higher prevalences for smoking and drinking. High levels of support are associated with improved life satisfaction, increased self-efficacy and higher levels of physical activity.
