Summary 

The United States Monitoring the Future Survey 1984 is part of the Monitoring the Future Study, an annual survey of students enrolled in public and private high schools in the United States. Begun in 1975 as a survey of 12th grade students, 8th and 10th grade surveys were added to the series in 1991. Monitoring the Future (MTF) surveys provide information on the attitudes and behaviors of students on the use and abuse of substances such as alcohol, tobacco, and illicit and prescription drugs. The MTF study is designed so that changes in attitudes and behaviors can be observed across time. Participants in the MTF 1984 (12th Grade) survey include 16,499 students from 117 public schools and 17 private schools.
