Euregional youth surveys will continue to be carried out in the future. This was already taken into account when setting up the current research. The digitisation of the current process was carried out in such a way that future research will be easier. In addition, when processing the data, so-called templates were created that can also be used in the future. This way, information on the health of young people in the EMR will also be collected and made available in the future. By means of an online map, these data are easily accessible to both the general public and professionals working with young people.
Through a digitisation process, the method for carrying out an euregional survey is considerably improved. Whereas previous scans still used paper surveys, the surveys in 2019 were carried out completely digitally. This is more effective and efficient at user, cost and analysis levels. The digitisation process also includes the visualisation of the data obtained on an online map. This makes the data transparent to a wide audience: both the general public and professionals. By including a selection of the (subsequently) digitised (anonymised) data from the previous scans, the trends within the (eu-)region(s) will become visible. During the digitisation process, extra attention is paid to the new European legislation and regulations on data collection (GDPR). Clear agreements must be made and laid down on the collection, access, processing, use and publication of cross-border data.
