Article focuses on the socio-economic and cultural and behavioural factors of young people’s health in Slovakia. The authors analyse the socio-economic conditionality of health-related risk behaviour of young people using data from the EHIS 2014. Binary logistic regression between socio-economic status has shown a clear link between income and household work intensity, and smoking. As for drinking alcohol, the results are not so clear and household income seems to be a major differentiating factor. While chances of getting addicted to smoking are significantly higher among young persons from low-income households, alcohol consumption is more common among their better-off peers.
