Questionnaire

The ten GSHS core questionnaire modules measure the most important health behaviors and protective factors among students. At least six of the ten GSHS core questionnaire modules must be used by each country along with three questions on respondent demographics. Once a core questionnaire module is selected, all the questions in that module must be used without modification. Each core questionnaire module contains from 3 to 7 questions. The modules are

  • Alcohol use
  • Dietary behaviors
  • Drug use
  • Hygiene
  • Mental health
  • Physical activity
  • Protective factors
  • Sexual behaviors related to HIV infection, other sexually-transmitted infections, and unintended pregnancy
  • Tobacco use
  • Violence and unintentional injury
