Seminar | Unpacking changing patterns of adolescent risk behaviours in New Zealand

Also available to view live via the internet. See details below.


Adolescent risk-taking behaviours, including smoking, binge drinking, drug use and risky driving, have declined in New Zealand. But which behaviours, when, for whom & WHY?

This seminar will use data from 27000 randomly selected New Zealand adolescents who participated in the 2001, 2007 and 2012 Adolescent Health Surveys (The Youth2000 series). Trends, challenges and driving forces for change will be examined.
