The Key Data series has been running since 1997, providing nearly 25 years of information about young people’s lives. Previous editions have been hard copies or on-line PDFs; since 2021 we have presented it as a website.

Key Data collates publicly available data, extracting what we can find that is directly relevant to the 10-25 age group. The information is organised by topic.  Each topic has its own colour.  Click on different topics to get an overview, key findings and links to more information. You can also use the search function to find information on different topics.

We’re very interested in what you think of this as a resource, or any information you might have about additional data sources that might be relevant. Please do email us at any time with comments, suggestions and feedback.

The charts and data presented on this website are available to download and use in your own work, with appropriate citation to the original source or to AYPH. Throughout the website you will find hyperlinks to other resources, and the facility to download Excel spreadsheets containing the original data on which the charts are based.

Key Data on Young People will have an accompanying Powerpoint slide set which will be published here shortly, which you will be able to download and use in your own presentations.

Related resources will also include a downloadable PDF of our Overview and Policy Implications report.

The AYPH website also has links to a number of resources to help in promoting young people’s health, including toolkits for frontline practitioners, briefing papers, support for engaging young people and promoting their participation in designing youth-friendly services.
