Annually since 1986, the Schools Health Education Unit (an independent research unit based in Exeter) has published the collected Health Related Behaviour Questionnaire (HRBQ) results. A large number of separate school surveys have been carried out, some schools repeating surveys of their pupils on many occasions. The data banks at the Unit are a unique resource that are consulted by a wide range of groups and individuals including Local Education Authorities, Health Authorities, Government Offices, University departments, schools, teachers and other interested individuals.
