Key results 2015

For most of the eight key variables studied the Lithuanian results were relatively close to the ESPAD average. The proportion of students in Lithuania reporting alcohol use in the last 30 days, however, was considerably lower than average (34 % versus 48 %), whereas cigarette use in the last 30 days and lifetime use of tranquillisers or sedatives without prescription were slightly more commonly reported (3 percentage points above the ESPAD average). Apart from the lower proportion of Lithuanian students that reported last-30-day use of alcohol, the overall picture for Lithuania shows levels of use quite similar to the ESPAD average.
