Description:
In early 1993, the Health Promotion Unit of the Department of Health commissioned the Economic and Social Research Institute to conduct a survey on smoking and drinking among a nationally representative sample of about 4000 young people aged 12 - 18, including some 15 - 18 year aids who had left school. Data were obtained using anonymous questionnaires. A total of 3935 questionnaires were completed in a representative sample of 80 second level schools (Figures 1.1 and 1.2). One hundred and fifty seven (157) young people who had permanently left school were also interviewed giving an 80% response rate from the 197 who were contacted in this group. Because of the great difference in size between the pupil sample and the sample of out-of-school young people the results are presented separately for the two groups. (Details of the sampling method for both groups are given in Appendix A)
