2006 CalTEENS Data Tables

The 2006 California Teen Eating, Exercise and Nutrition Survey (CalTEENS) data tables provide detailed information about California adolescent eating and physical activity behaviors.  Similar to previous years’ data, the 2006 CalTEENS data covers dietary intake and practices; physical and sedentary activity, knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs associated with eating and exercise, as well as factors that influence these behaviors, such as out-of-home eating, social norms, school environment, body weight status, weight loss practices, and poverty level. 

For more information regarding the CalTEENS data tables, contact Carolyn Rider, MA, at Carolyn.Rider@cdph.ca.gov.
