Drug Use among Students in Seattle's High Schools: School Related and Other Patterns of Use. Second Series Paper. Report No. 81-11.
Matthews, Tom
This report presents the results of a survey on drug use conducted in Seattle, Washington's 12 high schools in 1980. Tables show the frequency and occasion of drug use, the relation between participation in school activities and drug use, the kinds of drugs used, and drug use related to age, sex, family income, and work status of surveyed students. The report states that substantial numbers of students are involved with drugs and that, while drug use occurs during school related activities, much use occurs after school, on weekends and holidays. In addition, the paper reports that family income, as measured by lunch eligibility, tended to increase with the number of drugs used, and that users of multiple drugs tended to be male and older. A copy of the survey is appended to the report. (APM)
