The World Health Organization's Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) Study – Survey Results from Germany 2017/18

Issue 3/2020 of the Journal of Health Monitoring focuses on the results of the 2017/18 Health Behaviour in School-Aged Children (HBSC) study, which is conducted in collaboration with the World Health Organization.

This issue focuses on topics such as subjective health, physical activity and dietary habits, and (cyber)bullying in childhood and adolescence. In addition, gender role orientation and body satisfaction as well as alcohol, tobacco and cannabis use among adolescents are analysed. A further article describes the methodology of the study.

Together with the German Health Interview and Examination Survey for Children and Adolescents (KiGGS), which is conducted by the Robert Koch Institute, the HBSC study provides the most comprehensive data pool for health reporting and the development and evaluation of preventive measures for children and adolescents in Germany.
