New Local Illinois Data.

From the Urbana/Champaign News-Gazette in Illinois:

“The Paxton-Buckley-Loda school board learned from a student survey about the exposure some of their students have had to drugs and alcohol and their experiences with bullying.”

The survey revealed that 13% of the school’s 8th-graders had tried inhalants.

“The Illinois Youth Survey is given each year to students in the sixth, eighth, 10th and 12th grades. The focus of the survey is to follow student trends – this year, those concerning drugs and alcohol.”

More information on the statewide survey, including results from the mid 90s through 2006 can be found on the Illinois Youth Survey Site.
