Summary
These surveys of 8th- and 10th-grade students are part of a series that explores changes in important values, behaviors, and lifestyle orientations of contemporary American youth. Students in each grade are randomly assigned to complete one of four questionnaires, each with a different subset of topical questions but containing a set of "core" questions on demographics and drug use. There are more than 500 variables across the questionnaires. Drugs covered by this survey include amphetamines (stimulants), barbiturates (tranquilizers), other prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, tobacco, smokeless tobacco, vaping, alcohol, inhalants, steroids, marijuana, hashish, LSD, hallucinogens, cocaine, crack, ecstasy, methamphetamine, and injectable drugs such as heroin. Highlights for 2019: <list type="bulleted"> <itm>Change in methodology: half of the MTF schools completed in-class surveys on tablets loaded with the survey; the other half completed traditional paper-and-pencil surveys.

The front section of the codebook provides details about each of the variables. There are also instructions on how to merge the supplemental data on to the main data files for the previous three years: <list type="bulleted"> <itm><a href="https://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR37415">2018 data (ICPSR 37415)</a></itm> <itm><a href="https://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR37183">2017 data (ICPSR 37183)</a></itm> <itm><a href="https://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR36799">2016 data (ICPSR 36799)</a></itm> </list>
