The report presents descriptive results from three Health Promotion Agency (HPA) surveys about
the attitudes and behaviour around supply of alcohol to young people aged under 18 years. Most
data presented in the report are from the combined results of the Attitudes and Behaviour toward Alcohol Survey (ABAS) 2013/14, 2014/15, and 2015/16. This report should be read in conjunction with
ABAS Key Results: Young People Aged 15 to 24 Years.
Data from two further surveys, the 2016 Health and Lifestyles survey (HLS), and the 2014 Youth
Insights Survey (YIS), have been included to provide a more comprehensive picture around the
supply of alcohol to young people aged under 18 years. Each survey asks questions about, or to,
slightly different age groups of young people aged under 18 years.
