Statistical work for Health behaviour in school-aged children study (HBSC)

Project: Research

Project Details


Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) is the longest running international study that focuses on the health behaviour and social context of young people. The study was initiated in 1982 by researchers from three countries and shortly afterwards the project was adopted by the World Health Organization as a WHO collaborative study. There are now 48 participating countries and regions from across Europe and North America. Data is collected every four years using a survey methodology. England has been represented in the past five survey cycles (since 1997). The latest fieldwork was undertaken in 2021/22 and new publications, etc. will be generated from these new data. The survey for England is currently based at the University of Kent.

Prof. Neil H. Spencer was previously part of the HBSC England team when the project was based at the University of Hertfordshire. He is now liaising with the HBSC England team at Kent to provide support for publications and also data management relating to the 2021/22 fieldwork.
