Young people in Canada - their health and well-being /: H39-498/2004E-PDF

This report presents the findings of a five-year study on the health behaviour of school-aged children in Canada. The study examines more than 7,000 students in three age groups, and looks at patterns in the determinants of health, plus trends in health behaviours and attitudes. It focuses on socio-economic factors, the home, peer groups, school experiences, risk behaviours, diet and hygiene, bullying and fighting, injuries, and emotional health.
