The IPRC has conducted the Indiana Survey, and managed and reported the resulting data since 1991. This project is administered through a contract with the Division of Mental Health and Addiction of the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA).
In 2007 over 175,000 students (6th through 12th grade) in 478 schools across Indiana participated in the survey. These students completed a written survey that asked about their use of various drugs, the age of onset of first use of various drugs, and risk and protective factors.
