Health Behavior in School-Aged Children (HBSC) is a cross-national, school-based research study conducted in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Office in Europe begun in 1982 to collect information on health-related attitudes and behaviors of young people. These studies are based on nationally independent surveys in as many as 30 participating countries and are conducted every four years since the 1985-1986 school year.
