The aim of this website is to help you find useful data about young people’s health to use in your day to day work.

At its heart is a data compendium called ‘Key Data on Young People’s Health’ produced by the Association for Young People’s Health (AYPH). Key Data gives up to date national data on key health outcomes for 10-24 year olds.

It also include links to other resources and sources of data help you understand more about the key issues facing this age group.

“I think it’s important to have data about health because if you know what’s more likely to give you certain illnesses, then if you can prevent it, it might be better than trying to live with it and having to take medication for it.”

Key Data on Young People

Key Data on Young People

Key Data on Young People collates publicly available data on young people’s health and health service use from a wide range of sources to provide a holistic picture of the age-group. The resource extracts data specifically relating to the 10-24 age group, rather than combining them with younger children or older adults.

Health inequalities

Health inequalities

This section brings together available data on health inequalities faced by young people aged 10-24 in the UK. Data are separated into three key sections: drivers of inequality, levers for action and health outcomes.

Data for classroom teaching


We’ve drawn together key findings from Key Data on Young People to support delivery of PSHE in school, based around the new health education curriculum headings.  This includes links to more information and to lesson plans.

All our work at the Association for Young People’s Health is underpinned by young people’s perspectives. We asked young people what topics they thought were important, and our youth interns reflect on their experiences in working on Key Data on Young People.
