Just reading through some old data as I prepare for an interview and stumbled across this interesting note:
 
From the Connecticut School Health Survey 2005:
 

"In comparison to high school students who did not have at least one meal

with their family on five or more of the seven days prior to the survey,

high school students who did have at least one meal with their family

were 42% less likely to have ever used inhalants"


And the trend parallels the above for other substances and issues

» 34% less likely to have ever had sexual intercourse

» 40% less likely to have felt so sad or hopeless every day for 2 weeks or more in a row in the past year that they stopped doing some usual activities

» 31% less likely to be current marijuana users

» 47% less likely to be current cigarette smokers

» 27% less likely to have experienced dating violence in the past year

» 38% less likely to have seriously considered attempting suicide in the past year


Pretty powerful stuff. Your thoughts on this?
