Cook Island Global School-based Student Health Survey 2010

The Global school-based student health survey (GSHS) is a collaborative surveillance project designed to help countries measure and assess the behavioural risk factors and protective factors in 10 key areas among young people aged 13 to 17 years. The GSHS is a relatively low-cost school-based survey which uses a self-administered questionnaire to obtain data on young people's health behaviour and protective factors related to the leading causes of morbidity and mortality among children and adults worldwide.

The purpose of GSHS is to provide accurate data on health behaviors and protective factors among students to:
• Help countries develop priorities, establish programmes, and advocate for resources for school health and youth health programmes and policies;
• Establish trends in the prevalence of health behaviors and protective factors by country for use in evaluation of school health and youth health promotion;
• Allow countries, international agencies, and others to make comparisons across countries and within countries regarding the prevalence of health behaviors and protective factors.

Version 01: Public-use file adapted from the Master file provided by World Health Organization (WHO).

STUDENT: Alcohol use, dietary behaviours, drug use, hygiene, mental health, physical activity, protective facotrs, sexual behaviours, tobacco use, violence and unintentional injury.
