[ARTICLE] School-level socioeconomic status influences adolescents’ health-related lifestyle behaviours and intentions

Background: School-level socioeconomic status (SES) influences on adolescents’ lifestyle behaviors is understudied. We examined how school-level SES and sex influence adolescents’ health-related lifestyle behaviors and intentions.

Conclusions: Students from low ICSEA schools would benefit from additional support to improve dietary-related behaviors and intentions. More research is required to identify what targeted approaches will address sex differences in adolescents’ lifestyle behaviors.
