The Young People into 2013 report is a "unique contemporary archive" of young people from the Schools Health Education Unit (SHEU).
Each year, since 1977, SHEU carry out healthy lifestyle surveys with young people and, in 2012, this involved over 93,000 youngsters.
This report contains over 100 health-related behaviour questions and answers from over 68,000 pupils between the ages of 10 and 15.
They tell us about what they do at home, at school, and with their friends.
 
SHEU have available a 145 page pdf @ £50 for library use that includes:

(To the tune of: There's a hole in my bucket)
Me: I've done a correlation matrix (grid), using Pearson's correlation coefficient (r), for a selection of variables, using my statistical software SPSS.
Statistician: Yes, but having done that, some of the variables are not continuous, so you should use Spearman's correlation coefficient (rho).
Yes, but having said that, SPSS just uses Pearson's coefficient anyway, if the sample size is as large as this one.

Comments about SHEU

"The Unit has a unique historical and contemporary archive of young people." Prof. Ted Wragg 1938-2005

"Thank you very much, David, for another excellent survey.  We look forward to receiving our reports."

Healthy Schools Co-ordinator

My school took part in the Health Survey last year and found it incredibly beneficial. It has been an invaluable tool for planning our PSHE/well being provision and actioning our school development plan.

Primary School Wellbeing Lead

"Many thanks to SHEU for your excellent professional support over the years."

PSHE teacher

At the time, the results were very useful and the feedback report very useful and insightful. Significant changes will occur in our schools health and wellbeing provision next year and conducting another survey will certainly help me to ensure I am planning effectively for the needs of our pupils.

Head of Health and Wellbeing

"This week I have been working on a major strategy for service design -- it is easy to get solely focussed on hospitals, performance targets, and work force planning -- all very important; but at the same the needs of young people and how we need to work across agencies to address the health needs of today and tomorrow must be recognised. SHEU is founded to do just this."

PCT Performance Manager

"This is amazing! Thank you." (school report)
