An Analysis of Substance Use among Adolescents from Smaller Places.
Donnermeyer, Joseph F.; Scheer, Scott D.
Journal of Rural Health, v17 n2 p105-13 Spr 2001
Examines substance use trends among rural 12th-grade students, 1976-97, based on the national triennial study "Monitoring the Future." Finds that youth from more rural locations generally displayed lower rates of substance use, but as urbanization spread, differences declined. Compares data on farm, rural nonfarm, and small-town youth in both metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas. (Contains 35 references.) (TD)
