Health Behaviors in School-age Children (HBSC): 20092010
The HBSC study is a consortium of investigators from 40 predominantly European and North American countries who conduct a common survey of early adolescent health behaviors every 4 years. The survey gathers information about nutrition; dieting practices; physical activity; injuries; violence; relationships with family and friends; perceptions of school as a supportive environment; alcohol, tobacco, and drug use among adolescents; and the communities in which students live. The NIH and the Health Resources and Services Administration serve as the U.S. sponsors of the survey. This is the fourth survey done in the United States (previously administered in 1997–1998, 2001–2002, and 2005–2006).
Health Behavior in School-Age Children: NEXT Longitudinal Study: 2009–2013
NEXT is a 4-year longitudinal assessment of a representative sample of U.S. schoolchildren starting at grade 10. The study will examine adolescent health status and health behaviors from mid-adolescence through the post-high school year. Measures will be collected annually for 4 years beginning in the 2009–2010 school year. Hispanic and African American youth will be oversampled to provide better population estimates of these groups and to provide an adequate sample to examine racial and ethnic differences in longitudinal predictors of health, health behaviors, and health behavioral changes.
