Swedish Council for Information on Alcohol and Other Drugs
The European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs (ESPAD) provides data on many alcohol and drug related variables collected simultaneously in 26 European countries. With a few exceptions data were collected at the beginning of 1995. The target age group was students born in 1979, which means that the students were 15-16 years old when they answered the questionnaire. The surveys were conducted with a standardized methodology and a common questionnaire to provide data that were comparable between countries. A main goal of the ESPAD project is to provide comparable estimates on alcohol and drug consumption among students in Europe.
