HBSC international report: Growing up unequal: gender and socioeconomic differences in young people’s health and well-being published
The new HBSC (Health Behaviour in School-Aged Children) report ‘Growing up unequal: gender and socioeconomic differences in young people’s health and well-being‘ provides data from 42 countries in Europe and North America. Results are analysed and presented by the HBSC network of 340 in-country researchers.
Growing up unequal, a flagship WHO Europe publication, presents findings from the 2013/14 HBSC survey on the demographic and social influences on the health of almost 220,000 young people.
The cross-national survey covers diverse aspects of adolescent health and social behaviour, including self-assessment of mental health; obesity and body image; dietary habits; engagement in physical activity; support from families and peers; tobacco, alcohol and cannabis use; and bullying.
