A Survey of the Usage and Awareness of Drugs Among Students, Parents and Teachers.
McCowan, Richard J.; Mazalewski, Stanley
During 1972, in the southern tier of New York State, three surveys involving students, teachers, and parents from six communities were conducted to gather data on the incidence of drug usage among students, their knowledge about drugs, and towards specific drugs and their effects. These data were obtained primarily to provide baseline data which could be used for the development and evaluation of drug education programs. Survey 1 included the entire student population of six school districts located in the southern tier of New York State. The districts included urban, suburban, and rural communities and the student population included grades 6-12. A total of 6,194 subjects were surveyed. Survey 2 consisted of a random sample of 91 parents and community members, while Survey 3 consisted of 122 teachers. The 79 items and summaries of responses to the survey instrument, Survey on Drug Usage, are included. (Author)
