Victorian secondary school student smoking attitudes and behaviours

Beginning in 1984, this survey obtains attitudes and prevalence estimates of tobacco smoking among secondary schoolchildren throughout Victoria at three-yearly intervals. The survey also obtains prevalence estimates of secondary students' use of alcohol, since 1996, use of illicit substances and non-prescription pain killers and, since 2014, use of e-cigarette and vaping products.
