Accessing the Data

The Adolescent Health Research Group (AHRG) welcomes interest in the Youth2000 data set, including data from the four health and wellbeing surveys of secondary school students completed in 2001, 2007, 2012 and 2019. We are pleased to consider genuine enquiries from suitably qualified researchers and Masters/PhD students.

Researchers can access Youth2000 data through the mechanisms set out in the AHRG Data Access Policy. We will review all the applications to ensure the data will be used appropriately.

If you wish to access Youth2000 data sets, please complete the following steps:

  1. Read the 'Data Access Policy: National Youth Health Surveys' document.
  2. Contact Dr Terry Fleming to discuss your request, or you can contact other AHRG members to discuss your ideas.
  3. Following the discussion, write a Data Access Proposal. To assist in writing your Data Access Proposal, please view the sample DAP within the Data Access Policy below. Visit our data dictionary for questions and variables.
  4. Submit your Data Access Proposal form to Dr Terry Fleming.
  5. We will contact you to discuss the outcome of the review. Please see Appendix 1 of the AHRG Data Access Policy for more details on the process.

Comissioning a report

If you do not have the ability to conduct the statistical analysis yourself, but are wanting additional data that isn't covered on the Youth19 website, you may want to consider comissioning a report.

If you would like to comission an in-depth report on any of the topics in the Youth2000 survey series, please contact Dr Terry Fleming or Associate Professor Terryann Clark.
