Young People in 1992.
This document contains the results of the Health Related Behaviour Questionnaire which was administered to 20,218 students between the ages of 11 and 15 years in schools in England in 1992. The preliminary sections of the report explain the questionnaire and the survey, list the Schools Health Education Unit's databanks, describe the 1992 sample, and discuss the Unit's major report on trends across age groups and time, "Young People into the Nineties" (which is not included). The major text of the report is divided into eight groups, each dealing with a different health-related topic. For each group, actual survey questions are posed and tables provide percentage responses for boys and for girls in years 7, 8, 9, and 10 of school. Each question and table of results is followed by a brief commentary on the findings. Group 1 questions focus on diet and nutrition; group 2 questions deal with doctor and dentist visits; and group 3 questions focus on health and safety. Group 4 questions relate to leisure-time activities and the student's home routine; group 5 questions concern smoking, drinking, and drug use; and group 6 questions examine working for money, levels of income, and things on which students spend money. Group 7 questions deal with physical fitness and sports. Group 8 questions refer to social relationships, sources of information about sex, and problem-sharing. Also included are questions about Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) awareness. The survey itself is appended. (NB)
