Description:
The target population for this study was selected by a multistage stratified random sampling method. The Mid-west region was initially divided into four areas, Co. Clare, North Co. Tipperary, Co. Limerick and Limerick City and environs. The 69 schools were then stratified into male and female single sex schools, mixed secondary schools and vocational schools. A total of 23 schools was then proportionally and randomly selected within these strata. A total of 2297 post-primary school students from second year and pre-Leaving Cert. Years completed the questionnaire. These students were selected for three reasons: to allow direct comparison with the previous study by the Mid Western Health Board in 199B, because they were not in an examination year and thus were more accessible, and to allow some comparison with the 1999 ESPAD findings .
