The GSHS is a school-based survey conducted primarily among students aged 13-17 years.

The GSHS uses a standardized scientific sample selection process; common school-based methodology; and core questionnaire modules, core-expanded questions, and country-specific questions that are combined to form a self-administered questionnaire which can be administered during one regular class period.

Country-specific questions can be added to the GSHS core questionnaire.
