BACKGROUND

Drug use behaviour often begin in early adolescence. While household surveys are targeted towards a wide segment of the population aged 15-64 years, young respondents often form a small proportion of the target population such that resulting samples usually contain too few young people for analysis to be meaningful. School surveys are therefore important to estimate drug use prevalence among youths. While school survey is the most efficient and frequently used method for data collection on alcohol, tobacco, and drug use, it is also cost effective and relatively easy to conduct. Furthermore, school surveys may be more valid as young people are often more comfortable admitting to socially disapproved behaviours including drug use in school settings rather than in the home........
