Data visualisation: Positive experiences of school

This visualisation allows you to explore HBSC's data for young people who report liking school a lot.

School experiences occur during crucial developmental periods in young people’s lives and influence the development of their self-esteem, self-perceptions and health behaviours, with negative consequences for long term health and life satisfaction.

Liking school has been identified as a protective factor against health compromising behaviours including bullying, sexual risk-taking and tobacco, alcohol and drug use. Students who dislike school or do not feel connected to it are more likely to fail academically, leave education early and have mental health problems.
