The Schools Health Education Unit (SHEU) supports and promotes effective health education in primary and secondary schools in the United Kingdom. This book lists the results taken from "The Health Related Behaviour Questionnaire" collected from 29,074 participants (14,757 boys and 14,317 girls) between the ages of 11 and 16, from 171 schools in Scotland and England. The sample population came from requests made by health authorities who promote the use of this particular health questionnaire in their districts' schools. Participants know that their answers will remain anonymous and many of the study's statistical conclusions have proven accurate. The results are presented in a series of tables organized under eight groups: (1) Diet; (2) Doctor and Dentist; (3) Health and Safety; (4) Home; (5) Drugs; (6) Money; (7) Sport; and (8) Social and Personal. For each table, a question from the questionnaire appears at the top with the responses--given in percentages--presented underneath, categorized by age and gender. Each table also features a commentary at the bottom which offers some interpretation of the data. (RJM)
