Chapter 1 provides an introduction to the volume, noting that Monitoring the Future consists of an ongoing series of annual national surveys of American high school seniors begun in 1975 (the results of which are presented in volume I) and a series of annual follow-up surveys of representative samples of the previous participants from each high school senior class going back to the Class of 1976. It further notes that this volume presents the results of the 1977 through 1992 follow-up surveys of the graduating classes of 1976 through 1991.
