Adolescent Drug Use in Nebraska, 1988. Technical Report 19.
Newman, Ian M.; Anderson, Carolyn S.
This research report describes alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use among a representative sample of 7,187 Nebraska junior and senior high school students. The research is from an ongoing project: the Nebraska Adolescent Drug Use survey, which was initiated in 1982. The stated purpose of the project is to provide baseline and updated survey estimates of adolescent drug use in Nebraska to the Nebraska public, to educators charged with the responsibility of providing health education and intervention programs to the youth of the state, and to policymakers. The data upon which the report is based were collected during the spring of 1988. The report includes information on the self-reported use of alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, lysergic acid diethylamide, cocaine, heroin, barbiturates, amphetamines, tranquilizers, stimulants, other narcotics, and glue/inhalants. The report has three sections. The first describes current drug use among adolescents in Nebraska. The second compares current use among Nebraska high school seniors with current use among high school seniors in the United States as a whole. The third compares 1988 use in Nebraska with use as measured by the Nebraska Adolescent Drug Use Survey in 1982. Descriptions of the sample, the questionnaire, and methods used in the survey are provided at the end of this report. (ABL)
