Countdown: ESPAD to release new report on substance use in European pupils
The latest European data on substance use among 15–16-year-old school students will be released next week (September 20, 2016). The findings are based on a 2015 survey in 35 European countries conducted by the European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs (ESPAD).
New issues surveyed
ESPAD has been collecting data through school surveys every four years since 1995, the latest wave coinciding with its 20th anniversary. Special attention is given in the new report to new psychoactive substances, excessive internet use and online gaming and gambling, all of which were monitored for the first time in this survey round.
The report (in English) and the full dataset underpinning the analysis will be available online at www.espad.org.
