Abstract : The report documents two studies concerned with the effect upon obtained drug usage rates of various methods of data acquisition. Data were collected in the summer of 1972. One study compares the anonymous questionnaire and the personal interview. The other compares five different types of questionnaire administrators. The research subjects were Army enlisted personnel in grades from E1 through E5. There were approximately 400 men in the first study, and 500 in the second. In both studies, the obtained drug usage rates, by a variety of criteria, did not differ for modes of data collection. (Author)
