Fagerberg, Seigfred; Ayers, Boyd
The past few years have witnessed a proliferation of studies designed to ascertain the prevalence of drug-using behavior among adolescents. Most of these studies have utilized the self-report questionnaire since this method is most suitable for surveying large numbers of persons in a relatively short time while keeping the monetary costs of gathering data reasonably low. The school system has a responsibility to help students make responsible decisions about drug abuse. Hence, the curriculum must be modified and new programs must be implemented to accomplish this. A school survey will lead to planning new approaches to the problem. This guide presents the methodology and techniques for carrying out a survey in an individual school setting. Additional information is included to provide researchers with needed support information. (Author/HMV)
