Abstract

This study investigates the effect of employment status and drug use on ‘Peace’ among youths. A total number of 143 youths drawn from two social groups, Obinwanne and Omambala groups in Anambra State, Nigeria, served as the participants for the study. The researcher selected participants through simple random sampling which gives equal opportunity to the target group members. They consisted of 27 females and 116 males. Their ages ranged from 19 – 37 years with a mean age of 28.32 and a standard deviation of 4.28. Two instruments were used in the study, the Peace Index (PI) and the Drug Use Questionnaire (DUQ).
The researcher conducted a pilot study and obtained 0.89 alpha coefficient reliability on the scale and 0.80 alpha coefficient reliability in the drug use questionnaire. Two hypotheses were tested in the study: 1. Statistical hypothesis I suggests that employed and unemployed youths will remarkably vary in their level of ‘Peace’, was accepted at p<0.05; 2. statistical hypothesis2, suggests that drug users and non-drug users will remarkably vary in their level of Peace was also accepted at p<0.05.
However, the interaction between employment status and drug use was not statistically significant (F = 1.28, p = 0.26). The results were discussed. Relying on the findings of this study, the researcher recommends that the services of qualified psychologists be made available to schools and to counsel and direct students on the dangers of drug use.
