About the Monitoring the Future Study
NIDA's Monitoring the Future study is a national survey that tracks drug use trends among America's adolescents. The University of Michigan's Institute for Social Research has conducted the survey each year since 1975 among 12th graders; 8th and 10th graders were surveyed for the first time in 1991. Each spring, students from all three grades in a representative sample of public and private schools are asked if they have used any of a wide range of drugs, including alcohol and tobacco, in their lifetimes, in the past year, in the past month, and on a daily basis. In 1995, the survey administered questionnaires to about 16,000 high school seniors, 17,000 10th graders, and 18,000 8th graders in public and private schools nationwide.
