New report shows data on the health behaviours, health outcomes and contexts of Irish children’s lives

The HBSC Ireland Trends Report 1998 - 2010: Child Health Behaviours, Outcomes and Contexts’ was officially launched by Minister for Health James Reilly yesterday.  The Irish survey has been carried out by the Health Promotion Research Centre, NUI Galway since 1998 and brings together all the data (relating to almost 40,000 Irish children) collected over this period to examine the key trends and patterns between 1998 and 2010.  Overall, more children are reporting high life satisfaction and being happy, with less children smoking or drinking.
