Smoking, Drinking and Drug Use among Young People in England, 2021

The survey report released by ONS presents information on the percentage of pupils who have ever smoked, tried alcohol or taken drugs and on their regular use. 

In particular, it presents information on how much alcohol and what types of alcohol pupils consume, how many cigarettes they smoke and the types of drugs they use.

Relationships between smoking, drinking and drug use are explored along with the links between smoking, drinking and drug use with other factors such as age, gender, previous truancy or exclusion.

Data is at England level, with some regional breakdowns provided.
