Young People in Leicester City

About This Report:

A summary report of the Health Related Behaviour Survey

These results are the compilation of data collected from a sample of primary pupils aged 8 to 11 and secondary pupils aged 12 to 15 in Leicester City during Spring and Summer 2005. This work was commissioned by Leicester City Children's Fund as a way of collecting robust information about young people's lifestyles.

Teachers were briefed on how to collect the most reliable data and then pupils in Years 4, 5 and 6 in the primary schools and Years 8 and 10 in the secondary schools anonymously completed the
questionnaire. A total of 1314 pupils took part in 8 primary
schools and 4 secondary schools.

Completed questionnaires were then returned to the Schools Health Education Unit in Exeter for processing.
