National trends in drug use and related factors among American high school students and young adults, 1975-1986 by Lloyd D Johnston( Book )

5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is the 10th in an annual series reporting the drug use and related attitudes of American high school seniors. Findings reported cover the high school classes of 1975 through 1986 and come from the national project, Monitoring the Future: a Continuing Study of the Lifestyles and Values of Youth. Findings on the prevalence of, and trends in, drug use and related factors are reported separately for high school seniors and for two subsamples of young adults who had participated in the study as high school seniors: young adults post-high school and college students. Trend data are presented for varying time intervals. For high school seniors, drug use by grade level, degree and duration of drug highs, attitudes and beliefs about drugs, and the social milieu are also examined. A section entitled "Other Findings From the Study" explores the use of nonprescription stimulants, daily use of marijuana, medically supervised use of psychotherapeutic drugs, correlates of cigarette smoking, and other data on correlates and trends. Eleven separate classes of drugs are discussed: (1) marijuana (including hashish); (2) inhalants; (3) hallucinogens; (4) cocaine (including crack); (5) heroin; (6) other natural and synthetic opiates; (7) stimulants; (8) sedatives; (9) tranquilizers; (10) alcohol; and (11) cigarettes. Separate statistics are presented for several subclasses of drugs. Estimates adjusted for absentees and dropouts are appended. Forty data tables and 65 figures are included. (Nb)
Drug use among American high school students, college students, and other young adults : national trends through 1985 by Lloyd Johnston( Book )

6 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drug use and related attitudes of U.S. high school seniors from the graduating classes of 1975-1985 and young adults in their late teens and early- to mid-twenties were studied, as part of an ongoing research project. Eleven classes of drugs were assessed: marijuana (including hashish), inhalants, hallucinogens, cocaine, heroin, other natural and synthetic opiates, stimulants (amphetamines), sedatives, tranquilizers, alcohol, and cigarettes. Several subclasses of drugs were also covered: pcp and lysergic acid diethylamide (lsd), amyl and butyl nitrites, and barbiturates and methaqualone. Attention was focused on drug use at the higher frequency levels rather than whether respondents had ever used various drugs. Of concern were: age of first use; the seniors' own attitudes and beliefs; and the attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors of others in the seniors' social environment, including perceived drug availability. The use of non-prescription stimulants, including diet pills, stay-awake pills, and pseudo-amphetamines were also reported, along with cocaine use among young people. Findings include sex differences in drug use, differences related to college plans, regional differences, and differences related to population density. The implications of findings for prevention efforts were addressed. (Sw)
Adolescence to adulthood : change and stability in the lives of young men by Jerald G Bachman( Book )

9 editions published between 1971 and 1978 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, the sixth in a series of longitudinal studies initiated by the Youth in Transition Project, examines change and stability and educational and occupational attainments of young men. During the eight year study, nationally representative samples of over 2,000 young men were surveyed and their experiences from 10th grade through five years beyond high school graduation were traced. Objectives were to: (1) explore effects of dropping out of high school by comparing occupational attainments of dropouts with those of graduates, (2) determine the degree to which 10th grade measures can predict educational and occupational attainments, (3) assess the role of educational attainment as compared with the role of family background and intellectual ability, and (4) determine the impacts of post-high school experiences and environments on values, attitudes, and behaviors. The first portion of the book emphasizes factors which precede and/or contribute to educational and occupational attainment. Tenth grade measures of background, ability, educational experiences, occupational outcomes, and job satisfaction are examined. The second portion examines change and stability through a variety of dimensions measured repeatedly from 1966 to 1974. Changes in self-esteem, motives, affective states, values, and views on social issues are analyzed. Results indicate that differences are present before exposure to different environments and experiences; individuals who are initially different tend to seek out different situations. A detailed summary of results and technical information about the research are included
Illicit drug use, smoking, and drinking by America's high school students, college students, and young adults, 1975-1987 by Lloyd Johnston( Book )

10 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is the 11th in an annual series reporting the drug use and related attitudes of America's high school seniors and young adults. The findings, which cover the high school classes of 1975 through 1987, come from an ongoing national research and reporting program entitled "Monitoring the Future: a Continuing Study of the Lifestyles and Values of Youth," conducted by the University of Michigan's Institute for Social Research. The opening three chapters review the design and content of the "Monitoring the Future" study, provide an overview of key findings, and describe the study design and procedures. Chapters 4 through 9 focus on high school seniors, providing data on prevalence and trends in drug use, use at earlier levels, degree and duration of drug highs, attitudes and beliefs about drugs, and the social milieu for seniors. Chapters 10 through 13 cover the prevalence, trends, attitudes, and social milieu of post-high school young adults, while chapters 14 and 15 focus on prevalence and trends in drug use among college students. Chapter 16 provides other findings from the study, including the use of nonprescription stimulants, daily marijuana use, and data correlating drug use with other factors. Estimates adjusted for absentees and dropouts are appended. (Te)

Drugs and the class of '78 : behaviors, attitudes, and recent national trends by Lloyd Johnston( Book )

7 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the second in an annual series surveying the lifestyles and values of youth. Presented here are detailed statistics on the prevalence of drug use among American high school seniors in 1978 and on trends in those figures since 1975. Research involved annual data collection in approximately 125 public and private high schools across the U.S. Explored are students' attitudes about drug use, exposure to drug use, and perceptions about the availability of drugs. New subjects covered this year include the intensity and duration of the highs usually experienced with the various drugs and the cross-cohort comparisons of the rate of initiation into drug use. Also new this year are two figures in each drug chapter that deal with trends in drug use at earlier grade levels. Finally, two new chapters have been added that deal with certain relevant aspects of the social milieu in which American teenagers find themselves. (Author)

Highlights from student drug use in America, 1975-1980 by Lloyd Johnston( Book )

8 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents findings from a national survey of the 1975-80 high school classes, focusing on drug use and related attitudes of American high school seniors. The materials highlight data on grade of first use, usage trends at earlier grade levels, intensity of drug use, attitudes and beliefs about various types of drug use, and students' perceptions about their social environment. A description of the research is provided in the introduction, followed by an overview of key findings from 1980 data, E.G., a decline in the use of cigarettes, marijuana, pcp, inhalants, and barbituates, and stability in the use of cocaine and heroin. An increase in the use of stimulants and methaqualone is reported, accompanied by an increase in the proportion of seniors who use illicit drugs other than marijuana. The conclusion reflects the continued trend of widespread drug use among high school students. (Nrb)
Student drug use, attitudes, and beliefs : national trends, 1975-1982 by Lloyd Johnston( Book )

9 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents findings from the national research and reporting program, Monitoring the Future: a Continuing Study of the Lifestyle and Values of Youth, and is the sixth in an annual series reporting the drug use and related attitudes of high school seniors; the report covers the high school classes of 1975-1982. Two of the major topics covered are the current prevalence of drug use, and trends in use since 1975. Also reported are statistical data on grade of first use, trends in use at earlier grade levels, intensity of drug use, attitudes and beliefs among students concerning various types of drug use, and their perceptions of certain relevant aspects of the social environment. The eleven separate classes of drugs distinguished are marijuana (including hashish), inhalants, hallucinogens, cocaine, heroin, natural and synthetic opiates, stimulants, sedatives, tranquilizers, alcohol and cigarettes. Most of the information deals with illicit drug use. A special section discusses the use of non-prescription stimulants, including diet pills, stay-awake pills, and the look-alike pseudo-amphetamines. Results of the survey of seniors from approximately 125-140 public and private high schools throughout the United States showed that, although about two-thirds of all American students try an illicit drug before they finish high school, the use of many illegal drugs as well as cigarettes is declining. About 1 in 16 students drinks alcohol daily and 41% had had five or more drinks in a row at least once in the 2 weeks prior to the survey. These levels of substance use and abuse probably reflect the highest level of illicit drug use in the industrialized world. (Jac)
