The Institut de la statistique du Québec (ISQ) conducted the Québec Survey of Smoking, Alcohol, Drugs and Gambling in High School Students (QSSADGHSS) in 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2013, and should continue to do so. It targets the same population as the QHSHSS, i.e. Secondary I to V students. The data are solely provincial in scope. The survey examines smoking (consumption, social factors, exposure to secondhand smoke, attempts to stop using tobacco products, e-cigarettes), alcohol and drug use, gambling and betting, level of physical leisure activity and transportation, diet and physical appearance (ISQ, 2015c).
Table 1 presents additional details on the target population, the geographical coverage and the number of respondents.
