Abstract: This is the seventeenth annual survey in this series that explores changes in important values, behaviors, and lifestyle orientations of contemporary American youth. Two general types of tasks may be distinguished. The first is to provide a systematic and accurate description of the youth population of interest in a given year, and to quantify the direction and rate of change occurring over time. The second task, more analytic than descriptive, involves the explanation of the relationships and trends observed. Each year, a large, nationally representative sample of high school seniors in the United States is asked to respond to approximately 100 drug-use and demographic questions as well as to an average of 200 additional questions on a variety of subjects, including attitudes toward government, social institutions, race relations, changing roles for women, educational aspirations, occupational aims, and marital and family plans. There are more than 1,300 variables in all.

SOURCE: self-enumerated forms

UNIVERSE: High school seniors in the contiguous United States.

SAMPLE: Nationally representative multistage sample. The total sample was divided into five subsamples consisting of an average of 2,580 respondents, and each subsample was administered a different form of the questionnaire, although all the respondents answered the ''core'' drug and demographic questions. Each of the questionnaires generated a corresponding data file.

NOTE: All dummy variables were dropped from the data, and column locations for variables are different from those in the 1976-1989 surveys. Also, the codebook contains all variables for all parts and accurately reflects the data, unlike the codebooks from previous years. For a full list of related publications, see the codebook.
