The European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs

Slovak Republic

Key results 2011

For five out of the eight key variables studied, the Slovak students reported prevalence rates in line with the ESPAD average. By contrast, heavy episodic drinking in the past 30 days was clearly more common in Slovakia. Cigarette use during the past 30 days was also reported to a higher extent, as was lifetime use of cannabis (27% versus 17%). Compared with the ESPAD averages, the substance-use habits of the Slovak students seem slightly more extensive, at least as regards three of the measures studied.
