The decline of substance use in young adulthood : changes in social activities, roles, and beliefs by Jerald G Bachman( )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 1,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is intended as a thoughtful extension to Bachman et al.'s well-received monograph Smoking, Drinking, and Drug Use in Young Adulthood. That volume showed that the new freedoms of young adulthood lead to increases in substance use, while the responsibilities of adulthood--marriage, pregnancy, parenthood--contribute to declines in substance use. The Decline of Substance Use in Young Adulthood examines how the changes in social and religious experiences and in attitudes toward substance use observed among young adults are related to

National trends in drug use and related factors among American high school students and young adults, 1975-1986 by Lloyd Johnston( Book )

7 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is the 10th in an annual series reporting the drug use and related attitudes of American high school seniors. Findings reported cover the high school classes of 1975 through 1986 and come from the national project, Monitoring the Future: a Continuing Study of the Lifestyles and Values of Youth. Findings on the prevalence of, and trends in, drug use and related factors are reported separately for high school seniors and for two subsamples of young adults who had participated in the study as high school seniors: young adults post-high school and college students. Trend data are presented for varying time intervals. For high school seniors, drug use by grade level, degree and duration of drug highs, attitudes and beliefs about drugs, and the social milieu are also examined. A section entitled "Other Findings From the Study" explores the use of nonprescription stimulants, daily use of marijuana, medically supervised use of psychotherapeutic drugs, correlates of cigarette smoking, and other data on correlates and trends. Eleven separate classes of drugs are discussed: (1) marijuana (including hashish); (2) inhalants; (3) hallucinogens; (4) cocaine (including crack); (5) heroin; (6) other natural and synthetic opiates; (7) stimulants; (8) sedatives; (9) tranquilizers; (10) alcohol; and (11) cigarettes. Separate statistics are presented for several subclasses of drugs. Estimates adjusted for absentees and dropouts are appended. Forty data tables and 65 figures are included. (Nb)
Youth in transition by University of Michigan( Book )

24 editions published between 1971 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the fifth in a series of monographs documenting the Youth in Transition project, a longitudinal study covering the high school years of a nationwide representative sample of 2213 young men. The project began by collecting data on the sample as they entered Grade 10 in 1966 and has continued by re-interviewing the sample at the end of Grade 11 (1968), Grade 12 (1969), and one year after graduation (1970). Data from the most recent interview was examined to determine which factors influenced a young man to select the alternative of military science instead of finding a job or continuing his education. From the data, it appears that even prior to entrance into Grade 10 many young men are keyed to the choice of advanced education after high school. Such a choice is highly predictable from aptitude and family background. The same is not true for work or military choice; these choices were adopted only in the later years of high school and then somewhat reluctantly. There were almost no background characteristics distinguishing enlistees from those who took jobs. In addition to discussing the plans, attitudes, and behavior of young men from 1969-70, the monograph also contains an examination of some of the issues surrounding the debate over an all-volunteer armed forces and an indication of the feasibility of attracting volunteers to such a force using various incentives.

Adolescence to adulthood : change and stability in the lives of young men by Jerald G Bachman( Book )

7 editions published between 1971 and 1978 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, the sixth in a series of longitudinal studies initiated by the Youth in Transition Project, examines change and stability and educational and occupational attainments of young men. During the eight year study, nationally representative samples of over 2,000 young men were surveyed and their experiences from 10th grade through five years beyond high school graduation were traced. Objectives were to: (1) explore effects of dropping out of high school by comparing occupational attainments of dropouts with those of graduates, (2) determine the degree to which 10th grade measures can predict educational and occupational attainments, (3) assess the role of educational attainment as compared with the role of family background and intellectual ability, and (4) determine the impacts of post-high school experiences and environments on values, attitudes, and behaviors. The first portion of the book emphasizes factors which precede and/or contribute to educational and occupational attainment. Tenth grade measures of background, ability, educational experiences, occupational outcomes, and job satisfaction are examined. The second portion examines change and stability through a variety of dimensions measured repeatedly from 1966 to 1974. Changes in self-esteem, motives, affective states, values, and views on social issues are analyzed. Results indicate that differences are present before exposure to different environments and experiences; individuals who are initially different tend to seek out different situations. A detailed summary of results and technical information about the research are included

Sex role attitudes among high school seniors : views about work and family roles by A. Regula Herzog( Book )

14 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although sex roles seem to be undergoing substantial changes in today's society, the work and family roles of women remain quite different from those of men. Data from the Monitoring the Future project, a 2-year project focusing on high school seniors' sex role attitudes and the relationship of those attitudes to various plans for adult roles, confirmed that high school seniors were generally committed to the principle of equal opportunity but not to any principle of identical family roles. The overwhelming majority preferred the traditional role distinction in their own future marriages. Larger proportions of females favored complete equality in vocational and educational opportunities, while more males favored traditional sex roles; however, there were more similarities than differences between male and female responses. There were also few differences between the educational plans of male and female students; females seemed to take work as seriously as did males. Numerous data tables are provided to illustrate the research findings as well as a summary data chart that appears in the beginning of the document to aid the reader in finding particular tables of interest.
