Prevention Bibliography 1992-1993: An Annotated Guide to Information on Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug Use among Youth.
Sieber, Robert G.; Austin, Gregory
This document is the third in a series of annual guides to the literature on alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use among American youth and its prevention. It is designed to assist readers in finding the latest information about this social problem and the most effective strategies for eliminating it. This bibliography consists of an indexed collection of 253 references, with abstracts, to literature on alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use among school-aged youth in the United States, and what can be done to prevent or reduce use. It indexes literature identified and received between June 1992 and June 1993. The main focus is on research--specifically, epidemiological surveys, investigations of risk factors, and prevention and intervention program evaluations. General discussions, literature reviews, and program descriptions have been included if they were deemed relevant to understanding the nature of the problem and to developing programs to address it. The scope of the review is national; because of the scarcity of strong longitudinal studies, one Canadian longitudinal study in a large sample population has been included. The bibliography suggests that increasing attention is being paid to the assessment of alcohol and other drug use and the evaluation of prevention among subpopulations, including ethnic and racial minority groups. Documents are listed alphabetically by author. Indexes include a topic index with entries for subjects, specific drugs, and specific populations covered; and a separate document type index. (NB)
