Data and Documentation
The GSHS data is made available to the public two years after releasing the GSHS Factsheet. The GSHS data set includes students' responses to the core GSHS questionnaire modules. Data from core-expanded questions and country-specific questions will not be made public. No school or student identifiers will be included in the public use data set. PAHO/WHO recommends lead authors planning to do secondary analysis of the GSHS database to contact the GSHS country coordinator and notify CDC of their intent, to help avoid duplication of analytic ideas.
