Less Inhalant Risk in North Dakota

From the Grand Forks Herald in North Dakota:

More than 9,750 North Dakota students in grades nine through 12 recently took part in the 2007 National Youth Risk Behavior Survey. The survey is “conducted every two years by the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction and the North Dakota Department of Health.”

The survey results were released earlier this month and revealed: “North Dakota students are at less risk, however, of lifetime inhalant use — sniffing glue, breathing in contents of aerosol cans, inhaling paints or sprays — with about 11 percent saying they’ve tried it, to 13 percent nationwide.”
