This report is prepared within the international research project "European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs – ESPAD", in which Ukraine participates since 1995 with the technical support of United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The survey is conducted every four years. Ukraine is represented in all the waves of the survey – 1995, 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011, and 2015. The target group of the international survey ESPAD are students of particular birth year, who will turn 16 or are 16 years old during the survey year. In 2015, the target group were students born in 1999.

The data not only focuses on the latest results of the sixth wave of the students’ survey, but also analyzes trends of tobacco, alcohol and drugs use since 1995.
