General description
The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 is about improving the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of Wales. The Act places a legal requirement on Welsh Ministers to set national indicators for the purpose of measuring progress towards the achievement of the well-being goals.

The HBSC composite measure included in the data table has been laid as one of the national indicators for the Well-Being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 and will use the percentage of children who have fewer than two healthy lifestyle behaviours (not smoking, eating fruit daily or vegetables daily, never or rarely drink, physically active for an hour everyday) and the individual lifestyle behaviours will be used as contextual indicators.
