Maryland Adolescent Survey
The Maryland Adolescent Survey (MAS) has been conducted since 1992. The survey is conducted every other year. It collects data to determine the nature, extent, and trend of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug (ATOD) use among adolescents and provides findings on: protective factors; knowledge about the consequences of ATOD use; parenting and peer influences; information about impaired driving among twelfth graders; and reveals how safe our students feel at school, going to or from school, and in their neighborhoods.
