This survey is the latest in a series designed to monitor smoking, drinking and drug use among secondary school pupils aged 11 to 15. Information was obtained from 5,187 pupils in 174 schools throughout England in the autumn term of 2013.

The prevalence of illegal drug use in 2013 was at similar levels to 2011 and 2012, though considerably lower than in 2001, when the current method of measurement was first used. 16% of pupils had ever taken drugs, 11% had taken them in the last year and 6% in the last month.

In 2013, less than a quarter of pupils said that they had smoked at least once. At 22%, this was the lowest level recorded since the survey began in 1982, and continues the decline since 2003, when 42% of pupils had tried smoking.

In 2013, around two-fifths of pupils (39%) had drunk alcohol at least once. Boys and girls were equally likely to have done so. The proportion of pupils who have had an alcoholic drink increased with age from 6% of 11 year olds to 72% of 15 year olds.

Survey Carried out for the Health and Social Care Information Centre by NATCEN Social Research and the National Foundation for Educational Research

Smoking, drinking and drug use among young people in England in 2011 is the latest in a series designed to monitor smoking, drinking and drug use among secondary school pupils aged 11 to 15. Information was obtained from 6,519 pupils in 219 schools throughout England in the autumn term of 2011.

The first survey in the series, carried out in 1982, measured the prevalence of smoking among pupils and described their smoking behaviour. Trends in smoking were monitored by similar surveys carried out every two years. Questions on alcohol consumption were added to the survey in 1988; the 1998 survey was the first to include questions on the prevalence of drug use. Since 2000, the survey has been carried out annually by NatCen Social Research and the National Foundation for Educational Research.

Each survey now includes a core section of questions covering the following:
  • Pupils experience of smoking, drinking and drug use
  • Consumption of cigarettes and alcoholic drinks in the last week; and
  • Awareness and availability of specific named drugs


As well as these core measures, questionnaires since 2000 have included more detailed questions, with the focus alternating between smoking and drinking in one year and drug use the next. The focus in 2011 was drug use, and this report reflects that.
