This document is the technical report section of the larger report on the project entitled, Experiences of Albertan Youth 2008/09, which is a snapshot of the experiences of Albertan youth (12 to 24 years old) in 2008/09. It describes the characteristics and service use patterns of the population with a focus on mental health, educational achievement, and socio-economic status. A series of short reports on policy-relevant topics has been produced (e.g., Mental health status of Albertan youth, Albertan youth receiving intervention services for maltreatment, Albertan youth charged with an offence, A profile of post-secondary students in Alberta, etc.).
The Alberta Centre for Child, Family and Community Research manages The Child and Youth Data Laboratory (CYDL). The CYDL links and analyses Government of Alberta administrative data to inform policy. Find out more at: www.research4children.com
