PRIDE Surveys, Bowling Green, KY.
This booklet provides graphs, tables, and a summary compiled from data collected in schools using the 1994-1995 PRIDE Questionnaire. The data reflect prevalence and patterns of drug and alcohol abuse, violence, gang activity, and suicide. This report is designed for educators to use within their drug abuse and violence awareness and prevention programs with faculty, students, and parents. This report provides a news release about results of the Pride Survey, an Outline of Procedures Used to Obtain PRIDE National Survey Data, information about PRIDE, and graphs that explain the relationship between student behavior and alcohol/drug use. The location and time of drug use graphs help with understanding the need for a commitment to drug abuse prevention by parents and the larger community. They show that student alcohol and other drug use occurs most often outside the school and at times when school is not in session. The availability graphs show that easy access to drugs increases the probability of use and that availability increases at higher grade levels. One hundred and fifteen percentage tables are included. Each table corresponds to an item on the questionnaire. Data is presented by grade level. (MKA)
