“The Ontario Student Drug Use and Health Survey (OSDUHS) is an Ontario-wide survey of elementary (grades 7 and 8) and secondary (grades 9-12) school students conducted every two years since 1977. The survey uses a stratified (region, school type) two-stage cluster design (school, class). The 2007 total sample size was 6,323 students in grades 7 to 12 from 43 school boards, 119 schools, and 385 classes. The student participation rate was 68%. The 2007 sample represents about 1,011,000 students in grades 7 to 12 in public and Catholic schools across the province.”
