Abstract:

A new report from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, "Health Profile of California's Adolescents: Findings from the 2001 California Health Interview Survey," presents a public health profile of California adolescents ages 12-17 years. The report is based on data from the 2001 California Health Interview Survey.

Topics covered in the report include:
adult supervision and parental monitoring;
adherence to safety standards;
diet and physical activity;
tobacco, alcohol and marijuana use; and
sexual activity, including pregnancy and disease prevention.
Many of the findings are shown by gender, age, income and race/ethnicity. This publication provides data that will be of interest to public health professionals who work with adolescents, educators, and parents.
