Student Survey

Student Survey

The Student Survey is a study of young people’s living conditions in the Caribbean Netherlands. Statistics Netherlands (CBS) is conducting this study in cooperation with the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport (VWS). This study sets out to collect information on aspects of young people’s lives such as their home situation, how happy and healthy they are and what they would like to do when they leave school.

How can I take part?

If you are invited to participate in this study, you will receive a letter at school asking you to complete an online questionnaire in class. That letter will contain your username and password.
In the case of children below the age of 16, CBS always seeks permission in advance from parents or caregivers. Once parents or caregivers have given permission, they do not have to do anything else. Parents or caregivers who do not wish to give permission are invited to contact us. 

What is this research for?

The aim of the study is to build a clear picture of the lives of young people in the Caribbean Netherlands. What is life like for them? How do they feel about their situation? In order to answer these questions we are looking at a range of aspects, including who the young people live with, what they think of their neighbourhood, what they do in their free time, whether they exercise, whether they eat fruit and vegetables, whether they help out at home and what they want to do in the future. The information produced by this research can be used to develop youth policies on the islands.

Why have I been selected to take part?

This study is being conducted in association with secondary schools and senior secondary vocational colleges on the islands of Bonaire, Saba and St Eustatius. CBS is inviting all pupils and students up to the age of 17 (on the reference date of 30 September 2020) at these schools to contribute to the study. So we can build an accurate picture of what life is like as a young person in the Caribbean Netherlands. Your participation is very important.
