Summary

FHI (Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Drugs) is responsible for collecting Norwegian data for the European School Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs (ESPAD). To date, six data collections have been carried out (1995, 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015). The main result is a positive development in tobacco, alcohol and drug use among Norwegian 15-16 year olds, both boys and girls. In 2015, the proportions who used alcohol and tobacco respectively were at the lowest level since the start of the survey in 1995. The proportions for use of cannabis or other narcotic drugs are also at a stable and low level. Moreover, the use of the various substances among Norwegian 15-16 year olds is generally low compared to most other European countries.
