SHEU data: Fewer young people are now feeling at ease when visiting the doctor

From the early 1980s, SHEU have asked children and young people questions about visiting the doctor.

The report, Young People into 2013, from the Schools Health Education Unit, contains over 100 health-related behaviour questions and answers. Several questions are about sleep.

SHEU's latest 'Young People into 2013' report captures the attitudes of young people and, in particular, the changes seen from the primary to the secondary stage of pupils’ education. Despite the attention, drawn by some of the media, to extremes of young people’s behaviour, this report presents a more balanced view. For example, more 10-11 year old boys, than any of the other groups, continue to assess themselves as ‘very fit’ but perceived fitness, from youngsters aged 10-15 years, continues to decline both in boys and girls.
