A two-wave panel survey was carried out on a representative sample of New York State public secondary school students in fall 1971 and spring 1972. The majority of adolsecents have drunk beer or wine (82 per cent) smoked cigarettes (72 per cent) or used hard liquor (65 per cent). Better than one third (35 per cent) report the use of one or more illegal drugs. The illicit drugs most frequently used are marijuana (29 per cent) and hashish (21 per cent). About one in eight adolescents have used… 
Smoking, drinking, and drug use among American high school students: correlates and trends, 1975-1979.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the kinds of young people most at risk remain much the same, while the types and amounts of substances they use shift somewhat from year to year.
Drug use among public and private secondary school students in Puerto Rico.
TLDR
Differences between Puerto Rican adolescents vary significantly depending on sex and suggest that Puerto Rican sociocultural conditions may have an important effect upon male-female drug use patterns.
Adolescent drug use: findings of national and local surveys.
TLDR
Drug use of rural youth is similar to that of other youth, but use of Black and Hispanic seniors may be equivalent to or less than that of White seniors, and different locations may also have very different patterns of adolescent drug use, calling for different types of local intervention.
Changes in drug behavior from the middle to the late twenties: initiation, persistence, and cessation of use.
TLDR
By age 29, men have accumulated almost twice as many months of use of illicit drugs as women, and those who continue to use illicit drugs actively do so at lower levels of intensity than at younger ages.
Decline in the use of illicit drugs by high school students in New York State: a comparison with national data.
TLDR
Comparison with a statewide survey carried out five years earlier reveals a large decline in the use of illicit drugs in New York State in that period, and this decline appears to be stronger than the decline reported for national samples.
Drug Use by Urban and Rural Adolescents
This study investigated drug use behaviors of students in both rural and urban communities of Georgia. Data from 1,897 response forms to ninety survey items served as the basis for the findings
Racial/Ethnic differences in smoking, drinking, and illicit drug use among American high school seniors, 1976-89.
TLDR
Multivariate analyses indicate that subgroup differences in high school seniors' drug use are not primarily attributable to family composition, parents' education, region, or urban-rural distinctions, and relatively low levels of drug use by most non-White youth.
The Reliability and Validity of Drug Use Responses in a Large Scale Longitudinal Survey
TLDR
In a survey based on a representative sample of 8,206 New York State public secondary school students, it is found that self-reported Illicit drug use is consistent at one point in time, but less so over time.

Sequence and stages in patterns of adolescent drug use.
TLDR
Two prospective longitudinal surveys based on New York State high school students indicate well-defined steps underlying adolescent progression and regression in drug use and the identification of stages in drug behavior has implications regarding the optimum strategy for studying factors that predict, differentiate, or result from drug use.
Adolescent Marihuana Use: Role of Parents and Peers
TLDR
Peer and parental influences are synergistic; the highest rates of marihuana usage are observed among adolescents whose parents and friends are drug users, and the data indicate thatdrug use by peers exerts a greater influence than drug use by parents.
Inter-and Intragenerational Influences on Adolescent Marijuana Use.
To investigate inter- and intragenerational influences in adolescent marijuana use, a survey was undertaken on a representative sample of public secondary school students in New York State.
