Young Persons Behaviour and Attitudes Survey
A consortium of government departments have commissioned Central Survey Unit (CSU) to design and conduct a study on the behaviour and attitudes of young people in post-primary education in Northern Ireland. The Young Persons Behaviour and Attitudes Survey (YPBAS) is a school-based survey conducted among 11-16 year-olds. The research covers a range of topics, relevant to the lives of young people today such as demographics, social support, school, subject choices and next steps, nutrition, sport and physical activity, play and leisure, libraries, museums and arts, sun protection, the environment, travelling to school, road safety, attitudes towards domestic and sexual violence, personal safety, smoking, alcohol, solvents and drugs and sexual experience and knowledge.
Four rounds of the survey have now taken place: the first in Autumn 2000, the second in Autumn 2003, the third in Autumn 2007 and the fourth in Autumn 2010.
