As noted above, the OHTS has been administered annually in RYAA study communities since 2000.
As indicated by the Vermont New Directions evaluation and the ongoing Oregon RYAA evaluation, annual statewide youth surveys provide consistent measures of psychosocial factors and substance use behaviors that may be targeted and affected by local initiatives designed to prevent or reduce adolescent alcohol, tobacco, marijuana and other drug use.
These New Directions and RYAA studies further demonstrate that state health departments and other government agencies are willing to assist researchers in the utilization of statewide youth survey data and in the design of the survey itself for the purpose of evaluating local policies and programs that may affect adolescent substance use.
