Education-Drug Use Relationships: An Examination of Racial/Ethnic Subgroups
Jerald G. Bachman (au)
The Monitoring the Future project has for many years reported racial/ethnic differences in substance use among White, African-American, and Hispanic secondary school students. Trends over time for Whites, African Americans, and Hispanics are also presented graphically on occasion. The purpose of this report is to consider to what extent the projects broad findings linking adolescent educational successes and failures with drug use remain applicable to White, African-American, and Hispanic adolescents when analyzed as separate groups. This paper is not intended to focus on descriptive accuracy; indeed, due to the size and characteristics of the initial sample in The Education–Drug Use Connection, the minority subgroups analyzed here are too small to permit such estimates. The Education–Drug Use Connection focused primarily on a nationwide sample of adolescents, first surveyed when they were nearing the end of 8th grade in the years 1991, 1992, and 1993, and followed biennially for eight years thereafter. It provides a wealth of detail, both in analyses and reporting. This report describes key regression findings briefly in the text, along with a good deal of further detail in the tables, and then presents the authors’ conclusions. Figures.
