The main purpose of the European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs (ESPAD) is to collect comparable data on substance use among European students aged 15 and 16 in order to monitor trends within, as well as between, countries. The 2015 wave of the ESPAD survey marked the sixth occasion that Ireland has participated in this collaborative international project.

Additional aims of the project include:

  • to describe the prevalence of the use of alcohol and other drugs among students born in 1999 (aged 15-16 years old);
  • to compare prevalence and other relevant influences with ESPAD data gathered over the past twenty years;
  • to provide the opportunity for comparison between European countries regarding substance use; and
  • to indicate main trends in substance use over time.
