Ryan Hayes GEO 311 Atlas Assignment Description of Data The data present is the percentage of students within their respected countries who use cannabis (marijuana). The main source used was The 2007 ESPAD (European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs). The average age of a student in this survey was 15.8 years old. A secondary source that was used because Spain was not included in the initial source was the “Drug Use Among Young Adults (15-34)” retrieved from the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction.

The most recent year that had most available countries on this topic was 2007.
