NEDIS - Research on Health Promotion of Children and Adolescents

 

The research interests of the NEDIS group are health and health behaviours of school-aged children and adolescents, origin of socio-economic health differences, as well as services' means promoting health, particularly school health service and child health clinics.

Our disciplinary basis is primarily social epidemiology and we exploit methods and concepts from both social-behavioural and health sciences. Our main data sources are large quantitative surveys.
