Drug use, drinking, and smoking : national survey results from high school, college, and young adults populations, 1975-1988 by Lloyd Johnston( Book )

7 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is the twelfth in an annual series reporting the drug use and related attitudes of America's high school seniors, college students, and young adults. The findings, which cover the high school classes of 1975 through 1988, come from an ongoing national research and reporting program entitled "Monitoring the Future: a Continuing Study of the Lifestyles and Values of Youth." Two of the major topics which continue to be included in this series are the current prevalence of drug use among American high school seniors and trends in use by seniors since the study began in 1975. Distinctions among important demographic subgroups in the population are made, and this year for the first time distinctions among various socioeconomic levels are included. Also reported are data on grade of first use, trends in use at lower grade levels, intensity of drug use, attitudes and beliefs among seniors concerning various types of drug use, and their perceptions of certain relevant aspects of the social environment. Data on the prevalence and trends in drug use among young adults (late teens to the late twenties) who have completed high school are also incorporated into this report series. The continuing epidemic of cocaine use among young adults makes this an age group of particular importance. Two chapters in this report present data on college students specifically. Trends are presented on drug use among college students since 1980--the first year in which a good national sample of college students 1 to 4 years past high school was available from the follow-up survey.

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 399 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 )

8 editions published between 1971 and 1978 in English and held by 396 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 388 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)
Use of licit and illicit drugs by America's high school students, 1975-1984 by Lloyd Johnston( Book )

4 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two of the major topics treated in this report are the current prevalence of drug use among American high school seniors, and trends in use since 1975. Also reported are data on school grade of first use, trends in use at earlier grade levels, intensity of drug use, attitudes and beliefs among seniors 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 other than heroin, stimulants, sedatives, tranquilizers, alcohol, and cigarettes. Separate statistics are also presented here for several sub-classes of drugs: pcp and lsd, barbiturates and methaqualone, and amyl and butyl nitrites. Occasions of medically supervised use of the psychotherapeutic drugs were excluded. Attention was focused on high frequency levels of drug use and an indirect measure of dosage per occasion was introduced to differentiate levels of drug use. The "Other Findings" section includes data on the use of non-prescription stimulants, daily marijuana use, effects of post high school environments and role transitions on drug use, and the issue of distinguishing maturational change from period effects and class cohort differences. Findings are supported by numerous tables. (Author/MCK)
Smoking, drinking, and drug use in young adulthood : the impacts of new freedoms and new responsibilities by Jerald G Bachman( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do some young adults substantially change their patterns of smoking, drinking, or illicit drug use after graduating from high school? In this book, the authors show that leaving high school and leaving home create new freedoms that are linked to increases in the use of cigarettes, alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine. They also show that marriage, pregnancy, and parenthood create new responsibilities that are linked to decreases in drug use. The research is based on more than 33,000 young people followed from high school through young adulthood by the nationwide Monitoring the Future p

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

8 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 325 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)

The decline of substance use in young adulthood : changes in social activities, roles, and beliefs by Jerald G Bachman( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is intended as a thoughtful extension to Bachman et al.'s well-received monograph Smoking, Drinking, and Drug Use in Young Adulthood. That volume showed that the new freedoms of young adulthood lead to increases in substance use, while the responsibilities of adulthood--marriage, pregnancy, parenthood--contribute to declines in substance use. The Decline of Substance Use in Young Adulthood examines how the changes in social and religious experiences and in attitudes toward substance use observed among young adults are related to
