Study researched the impact of the contextual characteristics of the community on self-reported 8th grade alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use. Results indicate that community disorganization is an important risk factor for ATOD use while family supports is an important protective factor. Greater economic constraints decreases, rather than increases, substance use. Findings regarding other variables were mixed. (Contains 57 references and 5 tables.) (Author)
