The Scottish Schools Adolescent Lifestyle and Substance Use Survey (SALSUS) is part of an important and long established series of national surveys on smoking, drinking and drug use.  Information has been collected in Scotland from 1982 on smoking, 1990 on drinking and since 1998 on drug use.  The latest survey was carried out during the autumn term of 2010 with a sample of over 37,000 pupils from S2 and S4 classes from across Scotland.

The report provides information on:

  • Prevalence of smoking, drinking and drug use
  • Frequency of substance misuse
  • Sources of cigarettes, alcohol and drugs
  • Pupils’ attitudes to substance misuse

The 2010 survey also produced local reports at NHS board, Local authority and ADP level.
