* Using survey results in the KJSA

 The Young People's Survey is a valuable source of information about young people (Year 9 age) in Kirklees. Some of these results are used in our Kirklees Joint Strategic Assessment (KJSA). Information in the KJSA is organised into four broad areas (health-related conditions, people and life events, behaviours, and wider factors that impact on health), and each section (where appropriate) includes information about how that topic affects young people. There are also summaries relating to the population of Kirklees, and to geographical areas within Kirklees, as well as an overview of all the key health and wellbeing topics for Kirklees residents.
