Description:
This report is based on data gathered for the European Schools Project for Alcohol and Other Drugs (ESPAD) Survey carried out in Ireland in 2015. The ESPAD survey takes place concurrently every four years in more than 35 European countries and is based on a common set of questions and methodology. This series of studies began in 1995 following an initiative by the Swedish Council for Information on Alcohol and Other Drugs (CAN) to connect with researchers in other European countries, including Ireland, with a view to conducting a common survey on the usage of tobacco, alcohol and illegal drugs in the school-going population. The main aim of the ESPAD survey is to monitor trends in alcohol and other drug use among 15-16 year-olds and to compare trends between countries and groups of countries. In doing so, researchers compile a large database of information that can play an integral role in the planning and implementation of future initiatives and policies. The 2015 data collection wave marked the 20th anniversary of the first ESPAD survey and Ireland has participated in every phase of data collection since the launch in 1995 (Hibell et al, 1997, 2001, 2004; Morgan et al., 2008, 2012).
