Trends: Young People and Food Choices and Smoking

Using new data from over 516,000 young people we are updating the Trends reports that have data from 1983.
For example, around 25% of regular smokers, across all groups, don't want to give up smoking. The apparent lack of an overall trend suggests that the proportion who don't want to give up is fairly consistent irrespective of any influences that may alter a young smoker's attitude, and despite all health education efforts since the early 1980s.

There are now three, different, monthly research news emails

In January 2006 we sent the first Health News about 16+ a free, monthly news email with Internet links to information about 16+ year old's health and behaviour chosen from our databanks and the Internet. Since then we have added two more free, monthly emails so that we now cover news about young people ranging from around 5 -16+ year olds.

Biggest Year Ever!

Over 100,000 school pupils completed the Schools Health Education Unit’s (SHEU) Health Related Behaviour Questionnaire survey in 2008. Over 75,000 pupils were in the key year groups of 6,8 and 10.
