Alcohol and Young People: A review of New Zealand and other international literature

18 Dec 2017

This review focuses on the drinking behaviour of young New Zealanders (aged 12 to 24 years), and supports the analysis of alcohol data from the Statistics New Zealand Survey of Family Income and Employment (SoFIE) and the SoFIE-Health sub-study, conducted from 2002 to 2010. This report presents findings from literature published around this time period to provide context for understanding young peoples’ drinking behaviours, and how these have changed.
