Wakefield District Public Health team have been using the Health Related Behaviour Questionnaire (HRBQ) every two years since 2009 as a way of collecting robust information about young people’s health and lifestyles. The most recent version of this survey was carried out during the Autumn term of the 2016/17 school year.
This survey is an essential source of data for both schools and local authority commissioners alike, providing detailed and robust information about the health behaviours and lifestyle choices of the children living in Wakefield District. The survey is delivered in partnership with the Schools Health Education Unit (SHEU).
The survey is completed by pupils in year 5, year 9 and year 12&13. The content of the survey is widely consulted upon and uses age appropriate questions where necessary. Teachers were briefed by SHEU on how to collect the most reliable data. Surveys were completed either online or on paper.
Below are the Year Group reports, as well as two bespoke reports looking at inequalities and multiple health behaviours across the District. Additional analysis will be shown on this page in due course.
