It is a bar graph, where gender is shown on the horizontal axis and the percentage using marijuana in the past month is shown on the vertical axis. For each gender, there are bars representing 2002, 2003, and 2004. Tests of statistical significance at the .05 level were performed between 2003 and 2004 estimates and between 2002 and 2004 estimates; significant results are indicated where appropriate.

Among males aged 12 to 17, the percentage using marijuana in the past month was 9.1 percent in 2002, 8.6 percent in 2003, and 8.1 percent in 2004. The difference between the 2004 estimate and 2002 estimate was significant.
