Youth 2000, 2007 & 2012

The Youth2000 survey series asks large, representative samples of secondary school students from New Zealand a wide range of questions. These include questions about ethnicity and culture, physical health, food and activities, substance use, sexual health, injuries and violence, home and family health, school achievement and participation, neighbourhood environment, spirituality and access to healthcare.

The Adolescent Health Research Group has collected data on these topics from a total of 28,000 students who completed the Youth’12, Youth’07 and Youth’01 surveys. This comprehensive questionnaire allows us to take an ecological approach to identifying the risks and protective factors in young people’s lives.
