Editor's Choice: Characteristics and health of homeless families: the ENFAMS survey in the Paris region, France 2013

Several papers in this issue deal with health monitoring in Europe, and examples are given of comparative analyses. While important attempts are made to standardize data collection and developing indicators, most standard data collection system fail to identify health problems and health needs in marginalized populations, who at the same time are among those most in need of care and attention. The investigation on homeless persons in the Paris region, by Vandentorren et al, is an impressive attempt to assess the magnitude as well as health and social needs of a population that typically is not captured by standard health information systems.

Trends in young people's health and social determinants

View the latest European Journal of Public Health supplement on 'Trends in young people's health and social determinants', guest edited by Emmanuel Kuntsche, Bjørn E. Holstein and Ulrike Ravens-Sieberer.

This supplement aims to provide evidence on various aspects of young people's health, wellbeing and related factors, allowing the reader to get an overview of prevalence changes across countries for selected outcomes, e.g. fruit and vegetable consumption, overweight, injury-related mortality and morbidity, physical activity, parental communication, bullying, early sexual intercourse and condom use, weekly alcohol consumption and the co-occurrence of tobacco and cannabis use, and life satisfaction, just to name a few of the outcomes included. The supplement also offers examples of how time trends can be interpreted and explained when dealing with perceived school pressure and health complaints.
