Young People into 2011 is the latest report and 25th in the series that carries some trends data back to 1986. It is a unique, contemporary archive of young people from the Schools Health Education Unit. There are over 100 health-related behaviour questions and answers from over 83,000 youngsters between the ages of 10 and 15. They tell us about what they do at home, at school, and with their friends. The data have been collected from primary and secondary schools across the United Kingdom.
In 2012, Education and Health will be 29 years old and will be an online open access journal.
In recent years more articles have been made available as pdf files. This has increased access and given contributors more opportunites to have their work widely read.
The complete archive is also freely available encouraging contributors to write new articles based on previous publications.

"It should be for teachers, not the government, to design the lessons and the experiences that will engage pupils ... reflecting their pupils’ interests and local circumstances." Schools Minister Nick Gibb.
SHEU’s view, developed over 30 years, is that the best way to explore pupils' circumstances with a view to planning PSHE provision is with a local, anonymous, survey of health and lifestyles. Have a look at the detailed book of tables and a comparison report your school will receive following a survey.
We've just discovered that the Education and Health archive at /content/page/education-and-health-archive has been being sulky, asking that you sign in or register to see anything. Sorry about that.
We've told it to play nicely and share properly from now on. Let me know if you experience any problems.

JSNA - the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment
Get the perception and performance figures you need, about your young people, from SHEU.
The Coalition Government has placed the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment at the heart of its proposals with regard to the future of local health improvement.

Professor Mark D. Griffiths' article, The educational benefits of videogames, is one of many published in the journal Education and Health ISSN 0265-1602. The article, first published in 2002, describes the research dating right back to the early 1980s that has consistently shown that playing computer games (irrespective of genre) produces increases in reaction times, improved hand-eye co-ordination and raises players' self-esteem.

...but it invariably is Disraeli's one about lies and damned lies*. I hope this one gains a bit of circulation:
"A microscope enables you to see things which are too small to be seen by the naked eye; statistics enables you to see things in masses of data which are too complicated for the naked eye."
