The aim of the study is to obtain information on the life style and daily life of the youth; including physical activity, diet, well-being, family circumstances and the use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs.

It is a questionnaire survey and the respondents are a random sample of 16 – 20 year olds who are representative of their age group in terms of sex and age.
