For sample persons ages 18-44, COKPROBUSYP reports if the person continued to use cocaine despite problems related to using cocaine. This is a recoded variable based on the responses to survey questions inquiring about continued cocaine use despite problems with school or work, health, and friends or family. Persons who reported never using cocaine or last using cocaine over 12 months ago in previous questions are recorded as responding no.
This variable is part of a series of questions on drug and alcohol use. Respondents filled this survey supplement out themselves because of the potentially personal nature of the questions included in the supplement. The interviewer was available to provide assistance if requested. The supplement includes detailed questions about cocaine (COKABUSEYR), marijuana (MJABUSEYR), and general questions about use of hallucinogens, inhalants, heroin, painkillers, sedatives, stimulants, and tranquilizers.
