    Article - En anglais



    Based on an epidemiologic field survey of community households in Puerto Rico, this study estimates the frequency of illicit drug use and clinically defined drug abuse and/or dependence syndromes.

    Results are compared with those from surveys on the United States mainland.

    Suspected risk factors are studied as well, with a special focus on childhood misbehavior.


    Trained lay interviewers administered a Spanish Diagnostic Interview Schedule to 912 respondents aged 17 to 68 years who where selected by multistage probability sampling of island households.
