Behavior Assessment and Cross-Validation by Surrogate Measures in Drug Prevention Research.
Duryea, Elias; Nagel, Liza
Journal of Drug Education, v25 n4 p335-42 1995
Presents a case report illustrating the viability of a surrogate measure to cross-validate self-reports of alcohol consumption by members of a fraternity. Postulates that when used with more orthodox survey or interview techniques, surrogate measures can enhance a study's credibility. Predicts that drug abuse research will play a role in future efforts to reduce the nation's health-care burden. (KW)
