Health behaviours in 15 year olds

This section presents data on factors around health behaviours and risky behaviour in young people. It includes What About YOUth? survey data.

The data in this tool has been collated from the What About YOUth 2014 (WAY 2014) survey. The Children and Young People’s Health Outcomes Forum identified gaps in data relating to the health and wellbeing of young people in the Public Health Outcomes Framework. As part of a direct response to this, the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC), now NHS Digital, was commissioned by the Department of Health to develop the WAY 2014 survey.

A local authority breakdown of key indicators with comparisons to other sources is available from the Download tab, and a report relating to wellbeing based on WAY survey data was published in January 2018.
