SHEU is an independent research and publishing organisation. Each year the Schools Health Education Unit supports surveys in hundreds of communities nation wide and compiles the results from these surveys in the series ‘Young People in…’. The survey services began in the late 1970s and have been very widely used, and from the data bases from 1983 onwards we are publishing data to allow examination of trends.
Our annual survey sample is ‘accidental’ and not deliberate and is therefore  not a representative 'national sample' in a research sense. It is however very large, and within any one community is never less than 40% of the community and often greater than 70%. The aim is to provide robust data for the community in which the data are collected and used. With the large sample it comes as no surprise to discover that Unit’s annual data compilations usually match the outcomes of orthodox procedures for the collection of 'national data'.
