A national survey of students in U.S. middle schools and high schools shows some important improvements in levels of substance use, according to a news release. Both alcohol and cigarette use in 2014 are at their lowest points since the study began in 1975, according to a news release, and a number of illicit drugs also showed declines.
These findings come from the University of Michigan’s Monitoring the Future study, which tracks trends in substance use among students in 8th, 10th and 12th grades. Each year the national study surveys 40,000 to 50,000 students in about 400 secondary schools throughout the United States.
