Hertfordshire's Young People's Health and Wellbeing Survey

The Young People’s Health & Wellbeing Survey (YPHWS) is a youth health and wellbeing survey which gathers self-reported information annually from those aged 11-19 in Hertfordshire. The 2022 survey includes responses from over 11,000 young people, and you can search the results by topic or district. There is short-animation describing the key results, as well as a summary report and a dashboard of the data if you want to have a deeper look.

It was created with the aim of improving health outcomes for children and young people by informing commissioning services and young people’s services of the health behaviours and health needs of the younger population. The survey includes questions about home life, wellbeing, diet, physical activity, smoking, alcohol use, drug use, sexual health, mental health, bullying, and safety.
