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, Young people aged 11, 13, and 15 were asked to report the number of days over the past week during which they were physically active for a total of at least 60 minutes. The question was introduced by a text defining MVPA as any activity that increases the heart rate and makes the person get out of breath some of the time, with examples provided. Findings show associations between family affluence and reporting daily MVPA of at least one hour. 0 means less than +-0.5%. Low- and high-affluence groups represent the lowest 20% and highest 20% in each country. Denmark excludes data from Greenland.
