Characteristics of Teen Substance Users: A Data-Driven Learning Guide (ICPSR 322)

Principal Investigator(s):


Data-Driven Learning Guides are a collection of instructional exercises that can be used to enhance teaching of core concepts in the social sciences. This learning guide investigates the characteristics of adolescents who use alcohol and marijuana. Research questions that can be explored using this learning guide include: what proportion of teenagers have ever consumed alcohol and have ever become drunk, what proportion of teenagers report ever using marijuana, whether there are racial or gender differences in substance use, how teenagers' aspirations for the future may relate to substance use, and whether employment status can be related to substance use. Crosstabulations and bar charts are used for analyses.
