Experiences of Albertan Youth in 2008/09 – Introduction

The Experiences of Albertan youth in 2008/09 project focused on characterizing the experiences of Albertan youth 12 to 24 years old in 2008/09. Service use data were provided by the ministries, and individuals receiving services from different ministries were linked by an anonymous process.

A series of 15 reports on policy-relevant topics were produced (e.g., “Mental health status of Albertan youth”, “Maltreatment-related investigations among Albertan youth”, “Corrections involvement among Albertan youth”, etc.).

In addition, 20 Data Bytes were created with brief facts on key findings.
