The 14th collection of data has now ended

The QLSCD team would like to sincerely thank each family (parent and teenager) for their participation in the study. We would also like to thank all of our partners and other personnel who contributed to the success of this round.

Recent Publication

The Institut de la statistique du Québec recently published a bulletin entitled Des premiers balbutiements à un sourire en santé : l’importance d’intervenir tôt pour prévenir la carie dentaire (French version only). This publication provides an estimate of the proportion of children affected by tooth decay, as assessed by their mothers, among children born in Québec and aged 8 years in 2006. It then identifies certain sociodemographic, psychosocial and behavioural characteristics as well as some oral health habits associated with tooth decay among those children.

The SurvEd kit on success in school

This kit, produced in collaboration with Réunir Réussir and the Fédération des commissions scolaires du Québec, highlights findings contained in various Institut publications based on data from the QLSCD. The kit consists of 13 fact sheets covering topics such as school readiness, parent-school collaboration, teacher-student relationship, motivation and school performance and risk of dropping out of school. The kit is available in English and can be downloaded by clicking on the logo on the left of this page.

Dropping out – What Neuroscience Can Teach Us

November 4-5, 2015, Convention Centre, Québec City

”Low levels of literacy and numeracy and poor physical condition can contribute to a longer-term process of student disengagement, which leads to dropping out. Some traditional beliefs about how children learn might also be hindering our ability to adopt new teaching practices that are better suited to a student’s brain. At this symposium, a select group of ambitious researchers will share the potential for neuroscience research to change the way we tackle these issues.”
