The study provides new insights about adolescents and adults psychosocial well-being in several areas. What is it like growing up in Norway? What influences our lifestyle and mental health? What kind of education and which professions do we choose? Who gets into trouble with the law? How is our relationships and family life? Which gender differences exist? These and many other topics is examined in the Young in Norway Study.
