What About YOUth? is a new study which aims to make improvements to the health of young people across England. As part of the study, thousands of 15 year olds answered questions about important subjects such as their health, diet, exercise, bullying, alcohol, drugs and smoking. 

 

WAY 2014 is the first survey to be conducted of its kind and it is hoped that the survey will be repeated in order to form a time series of comparable data on a range of indicators for 15 year-olds across England. 

 

A report on the findings has now been published and the results are also available in a data visualisation tool.

 

Data generated from this survey can be used by LA commissioners, policy makers, service providers and third-sector organisations to target resources effectively and improve services for this age group.
