Youth Health Survey 2015

What’s the SAYCW Youth Health Survey 2015?

The SAYCW Youth Health Survey 2015 was a census-style survey, where all schools and school divisions or authorities across the province were invited to have their students from Grade 7 to 12 participate in the survey. The survey ensured that locally-relevant data was available to all schools and communities and did not exclude schools based on type of school authority, geography or size.

The Youth Health Survey focused on risk and protective factors for health and well-being and collected data on the following themes:

  • Demographics
  • Oral Health
  • Sun and UVR Safety
  • Healthy Weights
  • Nutrition
  • Physical Activity
  • Sleep
  • Mental Health and Well-being
  • Tobacco Use
  • Drug and Alcohol Use
  • Sexual Health

How the SAYCW Youth Health Survey 2015 was Developed

The SAYCW Youth Health Survey 2015 was developed in partnership with SAYCW members from the education and health sectors, as well as content experts. The survey was intended to respond to the needs and interests of schools and communities and to provide high-quality local data on health and well-being topics of interest to them. The survey was pilot-tested in 6 diverse schools across the province. SAYCW is working to improve the survey between survey cycles to ensure the data that is captured is as useful as possible to schools and communities.
