The second edition of the Québec Survey of Tobacco Use in High School Students (2000) provides data on the prevalence of smoking and a series of factors associated with taking up and maintaining this harmful habit. In addition, it provides data on the prevalence of alcohol and drug use, on gambling, and on the frequency with which students engage in gambling.
The target population of the survey included all students in Secondary 1 through 5 enrolled in the youth sector in French and English, public and private high schools in Québec. In total, 4,730 students from 156 schools took part in the survey in the fall 2000. The report is divided in two volumes.
