Alcohol Use and Maori Young People

30 Nov 2011

This fact sheet presents findings about alcohol use among young Māori attending secondary schools in New Zealand. These findings were drawn from a large national survey that investigated the health and wellbeing of secondary school students, in which 1,702 Māori students (18.7% of the total survey sample) participated. Māori students are all those who identified Māori ethnicity from a list of ethnic groups.
