Delaware School Survey. Center for Drug & Health Studies, University of Delaware.
NA = Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the data collection for the Delaware School Survey was temporarily suspended. This suspension has resulted in a gap in Delaware School Survey data for the 2020 survey year. However, due to an early administration approach that started in the 2019-2020 school year for the 8th grade survey, CDHS was able to collect enough surveys in the 2019-2020 school year to report out 8th grade data. Data on 5th and 11th grade students for the 2020 school year will not be available.

Since 1995, the Center for Drug and Health Studies at the University of Delaware has administered an annual survey to public school students about alcohol, tobacco and drug use. The Delaware School Survey is an annual survey of 5th
grade public school student in Delaware. This study is the continuation of a survey that was first administered to Delaware students in Spring, 1989. Since 2004, the Delaware School Survey has been jointly sponsored by the Delaware Legislature through the Delaware Health Fund and Prevention Block Grant funding. It has become a valuable tool in assessing trends of questions on school behavior, health habits and parental interaction. In recent years, the study has shown an increased interest in safety, parental involvement, educational needs and healthy lifestyles.
