MTF 2008 (8th/10th Grade)
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 450 variables across the questionnaires.
Drugs covered by this survey include amphetamines (stimulants),
barbiturates (tranquilizers), other prescription drugs,
over-the-counter medications, tobacco, smokeless tobacco, alcohol,
inhalants, steroids, marijuana, hashish, LSD, hallucinogens, cocaine,
crack, ecstasy, methamphetamine, and injectable drugs such as heroin.
