Welcome to the State of California 

2000 California Teen Eating, Exercise and Nutrition Survey (CalTEENS)

The 2000 California Teen Eating, Exercise and Nutrition Survey (CalTEENS)  data tables provide detailed information about California adolescent eating and physical activity behaviors.  The 2000 CalTEENS data covers dietary intake and practices, physical and sedentary activity, factors that influence these behaviors including out-of-home eating, social norms, school environment, weight status, weight loss practices, as well as knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs associated with eating and exercise. 

Using a 30-35 minute telephone survey, 1215 teens between the ages of 12-17 were interviewed. Smoking habits, physical activity habits, and overweight status variables were included on the demographic tables in order to examine clustering behaviors.  A "Smoker" was defined as a respondent who reported smoking a whole cigarette in the past thirty days.  A respondent was considered to get "Regular" exercise if he/she reported moderate or vigorous exercise or physical education classes three or more times in the week prior to the survey. A respondent was considered "At Risk for Overweight or Overweight" if their body composition was calculated at BMI ≥ 85th percentile for their gender and age.  For more information regarding the CalTEENS survey, contact Carolyn Kitzmann at carolyn.kitzmann@cdph.ca.gov.
