Descriptive Profiles and Correlates of Substance Use in Hong Kong Adolescents: A Longitudinal Study $45.00
Authors:  Daniel T.L. Shek and Lu Yu
Abstract:
Utilizing longitudinal data collected from secondary school students in Hong Kong (N = 7,975 at Wave 1 and N = 6,962 at Wave 6), the present study examined the prevalence of different substance use behaviors among Hong Kong adolescents and identified several psychosocial correlates of adolescent drug abuse. Results showed that drug use was not uncommon amongst adolescents in Hong Kong, with alcohol, tobacco, and organic solvent being the most frequently used substance. Being male and non-intact family status were risk factors for adolescent substance use. Consistent with our expectation, good academic and school performance as well as positive youth development constructs generally decreased the likelihood of using drugs.
