Young people, alcohol and influences – Joseph Rowntree Foundation – 17 June 2011

Pamela Bremner et al.

“This report presents the findings from a major study of young people and their relationship with alcohol, and explores the wide range of influences on their drinking.

This study differs from other research: it develops evidence of how different domains of influence work together, understanding their relative importance in tackling different patterns of drinking among different groups.

The study involved a survey of 5,700 teenagers aged 13–14 (Year 9) and 15–16 (Year 11) in schools in England and data was statistically modelled to highlight the strongest influences on and predictors of young people’s drinking.

The report:

  • examines circumstances surrounding young people’s first time drinking, their current drinking patterns (including levels of consumption), and their experiences of drunkenness; and
  • develops our understanding of what really influences young people’s drinking patterns by identifying the domains and indicators that have the strongest relationship with their behaviour.”
