Young People on their own

We're working hard on the production of our once-annual reports following the retirement of David McGeorge last year, but we're realising how much work he used to put in!

But we've compiled all the aggregate data sets, and have produced most of the tables, and have had a peek at what the results are telling us.

Sample sizes:

Parent/carer email about postcodes

What precautions do you take to make sure an individual cannot be identified from their postcode?

There are general precautions about the security of our servers which I am sure every good business would adopt, but we make a special effort with postcodes.

I don't know if your child competed the survey online or on paper - the account to be given in each case is slightly different.

Sources of information and support for young people

@ncbtweets conclude from their survey of 263 young people:

  • young people (are) more likely to turn to parents (62%) for health advice than internet (47%)
  • over a quarter (28%) of young people feel uncomfortable visiting GP over health issues

These very much fit in with our findings over many years, for example, from our 2010 figures:

Young people in the news

I was in Guernsey yesterday talking with press, politicians and other movers and shakers about a largely positive survey of parents and carers:

It included, as it happens, some questions about how young people are portrayed in the news media.  When I arrived, my host Alun Williams showed me a wince-making news story that we feared might come up in questions:

I should caution that these data have nothing like the scope of the primary survey, being drawn from a smaller collection of schools over a longer period of time.  But as was said before, the point of the surveys is to prompt local discussion and local action.

No, not me... I just came across a table in my papers that I have always enjoyed looking at, and thought I'd share it.

INFORMATION FOR PARENTS and CARERS
Why does the survey ask for our postcode and does this mean we can be identified?

Parent surveys

Our parent/carer surveys have mostly been perception surveys rather than lifestyle surveys, although we have done both. They can be completed on paper or online, and can be customised to suit your situation.  See also:
