PREVALENCE OF NARCOTISM AND THE ATTITUDES ON DRUGS OF HIGH-SCHOOL STUDENTS IN THE FOURTH YEAR IN SUGS “GEORGI DIMITROV” FROM SKOPJE

Daniela Shukova-Stojmanovska, Toni Trajkovski

The research was conducted on 20th and 21st March 2012 in SUGS “Georgi Dimitrov” in Skopje, on a sample of 100 school students, of both genders (50 male and 50 female participants) from the fourth year in the high-school SUGS “Georgi Dimitrov” from Skopje, since we considered that at the population at this age we can get the most objective answers. An anonymous survey questionnaire of 15 questions was applied in the research. The respondents were asked to choose one of the offered answers to each question separately. The filling of the questionnaire was conducted during physical education classes. χ² - test of two or more independent samples has been calculated, whereupon the empirical frequencies from each question have been compared with the theoretical ones, which are determined on the basis of equal probability. Yates’s correction was applied in certain found (obtained) frequencies. The statistic package of programs ,,STATISTICA 6.0, was used for data processing. From the obtained results it can be concluded that 7 % of the school students (8% male and 6% female) are taking drugs, mostly, once a week. All of the drug users (100%) took drug with a friend or peer, and 42% of them have at least one member in the family that is also taking drugs. This percent is small, compared to other authors, so maybe in some next survey it should be taken into account trying drugs, or irregular taking drugs, as well.
