Publication of international data from 2017/18 HBSC survey: May 19th

For more than 30 years, the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study has provided information about the health, well-being, social environment and health behaviour of 11-, 13- and 15-year-old boys and girls. The latest international report, "Spotlight on adolescent health and well-being. Findings from the 2017/2018 Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) survey in Europe and Canada", will be published on 19 May 2020.

The report will present findings on adolescent health and well-being from 45 participating countries and regions in 2017/18. It will be divided into two volumes. Volume 1 will provide an overview of the key findings highlighting important gender and socioeconomic differences, as well as changes since the last survey in 2013/2014. The key data will be presented in Volume 2 in a series of charts showing country/region-level and overall prevalence by age, gender and family affluence.

A broad range of measures of physical and mental well-being will be included in the report, as well as young people's experiences of school, family life and peer relationships. A new special focus area on online communication was included in the 2017/18 HBSC survey to better understand the role of digital technology in young people's lives. For the first time, the report will also include data from the last survey in 2013/2014 to show where key changes have occurred in young people's health and health behaviours, as well as the broader circumstances in which they live and grow.
