Project Description:

This annual survey of substance use, delinquency and risk and protective factors is administered to public school 5th, 8th, and 11th graders. It began in 1989 as a survey conducted by the Delaware Department of Education and has been conducted by the Center since 1995, first with support from the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention under support from CSAP evaluation contracts. The survey is developed by CDAS with input from State and community agencies, scanned, analyzed, tabulated and disseminated. The data provide a sample adequate to provide for analyses at the levels of Statewide Planning Area, School District, School (for large schools) and zip code.
