Cocaine use among youths as measured by several annual surveys was most popular from about 1979 to 1986, after which it declined.
This study carefully examines the nature of the decline by focusing on microdata for youthful arrestees in Manhattan.
Multiple statistical analyses examine whether the decline in cocaine use detected by urinalysis is attibutable to fewer arrested youths born more recently having become regular users (cohort effect), to regular users decreasing their consumption (period effect), or to changes in arrest or sampling priorities (artifact).
