All young people are entitled to be safe and free from abuse at home, in schools and in communities. These are basic human rights, which are important for immediate and long term mental and physical health. In this brief, we outline key indicators on safety and violence from Youth19 and previous Youth2000 surveys. This builds previous Youth2000 analyses [1,2].
Youth19 is the latest in the Youth2000 Survey Series carried out by the Adolescent Health Research Group, including researchers from The University of Auckland, Te Herenga Waka | Victoria University of Wellington, University of Otago and others. The Youth2000 surveys have involved over 36 000 adolescents in large-scale school surveys in 2001, 2007, 2012 and 2019, along with surveys among other groups of teenagers in other years.
