The WHO Europe Child and Adolescent Health Database (CAHD) provides a set of statistics based on indicators related to the health and well-being of children and adolescents. The statistics were collated from a variety of databases as a joint effort between WHO program divisions and collaborating centres and partners. The database was constructed for the purpose of supporting the Child and Adolescent Health and Development Strategy (2015), providing the relevant information for monitoring progress on child and adolescent health indicators in the 53 member states of the WHO European Region. 

Indicator notes
Source: Health Behavior in School-aged Children (HBSC) and European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Drugs (ESPAD) This indicator uses data from two sources: HBSC (survey 2013/2014) and ESPAD (2011). Wherever HBSC data was missing, ESPAD data was used. Countries not having any data from both studies are left with missing data. ESPAD data was used for: Andorra, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyprus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Monaco, Montenegro, Republic of Moldova, San Marino, Serbia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan. For HBSC data, young people aged 15 were asked whether they had ever had so much alcohol that they were really drunk. For ESPAD data, students aged 15 and 16 were asked to report their frequency of being drunk throughout their lifetime. The findings presented here show the proportions who reported having been drunk once or more.
