How's Your Wellbeing?
In March, the Welsh Assembly Government announced the electronic publication of the 2011 Children And Young People's Wellbeing Monitor for Wales.
To mark the occasion, Zoe Brooks from the Cardiff School Of Journalism caught up with Deputy Minister Huw Lewis to ask a few questions and find out about some of the report's findings, which include:
- The rate of hospital admissions for self-harm in Wales have increased in recent years and are lower for boys than for girls
- The numbers of young people not in education, training or employment (NEET) have remained largely at the same level for more than a decade
- The proportion of pupils taking part in club sport has increased gradually during the past ten years
- 31% of 16 to 25-year-olds in Wales had volunteered to help friends, neighbours or other members of the community in the past year and 20% had volunteered for an organisation
- The numbers of children killed or seriously injured in road traffic accidents have declined since 1979, reflecting changes in children's behaviour towards road safety and the trend towards safer cars
