Dataset for "Health and Wellbeing Student Survey"



This data is from an exploratory, pilot, cross-sectional survey into the health and well-being of students at a higher education institution. Attending university is often characterised by greater autonomy in decision making, new social influences and peer networks, exposure to novel stressors, increased levels of independence and, for many university students, the requirement to self-manage their overall lifestyle. Importantly, the transition can result in behaviour and environment changes that can cause adverse health outcomes for many young adults. These adverse health outcomes may include poor mental health, decreased physical activity, increased sedentary behaviours, disrupted sleep patterns, sub-optimal dietary behaviours, weight gain, elevated alcohol consumption and elevated rates of substance misuse.

Presented is the raw data from the survey.
