  • 6. Our results
    Of 50 studends surveyd, 40 have said yes to eitther smoking or drinking in the past or who still use.
    4 said they used to use but found it not worth thr trouble and have not continued use
    And 6 students have never used.
  • 7. Conclusion
    Most of the students in our school matched the results in the national survey.
    Differences between our study and the national one is the amount of students tested but I do think our results are accurate.
    It does go to show how many students are beginning to expiriment.
