The project is aimed at the analysis of the health risk behavior and life style of the Czech youth. Precedent studies and projects of the research team reported that current Czech teenagers have an increasing tendency of the risk behavior, including substance use. Project investigates these issues in the background of population sociogeographic context and enriches it with the spatial differentiation of the risk behavior, life style and quality of life of the youth. There is a unique opportunity within this project to use the possibility of cooperation on the new wave of the ESPAD survey and thus to gather unique individual data focused on school, family and spatial characteristics in a short time. The outcomes of the project should shift the knowledge in both the realm of basic and applied research (general recommendation for the creation and mutual validization of the social and health policies with the stress on the area specific primary prevention).
