2010 Monitoring the Future (MTF) Released

Monitoring the Future is an ongoing study of the behaviors, attitudes, and values of American secondary school students, college students, and young adults. Each year, a total of approximately 50,000 8th, 10th and 12th grade students are surveyed (12th graders since 1975, and 8th and 10th graders since 1991). In addition, annual follow-up questionnaires are mailed to a sample of each graduating class for a number of years after their initial participation. The Monitoring the Future Study has been funded under a series of investigator-initiated competing research grants from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, a part of the National Institutes of Health. MTF is conducted at the Survey Research Center in the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan.

The data and documentation files for both the 2010 MTF 8th/10th and 12th grade studies have been released and are available for download. The 12th grade core data file is also available for online analysis. The SDA codebooks for both studies can be accessed on SAMHDA's SDA Codebooks page.
