Annotation: This section of Trends in the Well-Being of America's Children and Youth, 1997, concentrates on Behavioral Health: Smoking, Alcohol, and Substance Abuse.
Abstract: Seven individual chapters examine cigarette smoking, use of smokeless tobacco, binge drinking, exposure to drunk driving, drug use (marijuana, inhalants, hallucinogens, and cocaine), peer attitudes (towards alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, and smoking), and abuse of alcohol and other controlled substances among youth. Each chapter provides one or more graphics to highlight key trends and important population sub-group differences, and tables that provide more detailed information. These are accompanied by text that briefly describes the importance of each indicator and highlights the most salient features of the data. In all tables and figures, unless otherwise specified, race-specific estimates include Hispanics. In the textual descriptions of the data, races are in most cases referred to simply as white, black, Native American, or Asian, whether or not they include Hispanics. When Hispanics have been excluded, this is noted in a footnote. Notes, figures, tables
