In Ireland, there’s been a significant drop in the number of school aged children who smoke, as the trend in alcohol consumption and use of cannabis. This is the new information contained in the HBSC (Health Behaviour in School-aged Children) Ireland Trends Report 1998–2010, conducted in collaboration with the World Health Organisation (WHO) Regional Office for Europe. In particular, the Report explores the trends in the health and well-being of children between 10 – 17 years old trough key indicators like the contexts of their lives, health behaviours and health outcomes. The Document shows that there was a statistically significant decrease, for example, in the percentage of young people who used to smoke (from 21.2% in 1998 to 11.9 % in 2010), to drunk (from 29.3% in 1998 to 28.3% in 2010) and to use cannabis (from 10.3% in 1998 to 8.3% 2010).The Survey underlines that these results are possible thanks to an healthy lifestyle promotion and social policies made by the Government and the others educational agencies.
