The European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Drugs (ESPAD), which began in 1995 and is carried out every four years, has been released with figures for 2007.

The survey covers 35 European countries, questioning an average of 2,000 students in each, and offers a snapshot of drinking, smoking and drug use among 15- and 16-year-olds, as well as looking at trends over a longer period (12 years).
