The European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs


Key results 2011

Of the eight key variables studied, Portuguese students scored around average for five of them and below average for the remaining three. An obvious difference can be seen for heavy episodic drinking during the past 30 days, which was reported by only 22% of the Portuguese students, compared with the ESPAD average of 39%. Also past 30 days use of alcohol is lower than average, and so is lifetime use of inhalants. Despite this, however, the overall impression is that the reported substance-use habits of the Portuguese students are quite similar to those of the average ESPAD student.
