New research shows that the majority of 13-year-olds are healthy, have settled well into secondary school and feel supported by family and friends, despite the unprecedented disruption to their adolescence caused by the pandemic.

Prior to January 2023, the study was carried out by a consortium of researchers led by the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) and Trinity College Dublin (TCD). The Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth was the sponsor.
