Violence Against Children Survey 2011 - Zimbabwe: Substance Use

The Violence Against Children Survey Substance Use measure includes 7 items from the National Baseline Survey on Life Experiences of Adolescents (NBLSEA, 2011). The items ask questions on experiences with substance use, including drugs, alcohol and cigarette smoking. Violence Against Children Surveys are nationally representative household surveys of children and young adults aged 13 to 24 years. They are designed to measure the prevalence and circumstances surrounding emotional, physical, and sexual violence against males and females in childhood (before age 18). Navigational aspects (i.e., skip-out patterns and next question sequences) have not been included, but can be viewed in the original questionnaire available here
