Alcohol consumption by young people aged under 18 years (‘under 18s’) increases the risk of adverse physical and cognitive development, other alcohol-related harms, and alcohol-use disorders later in life. Social supply is the supply of alcohol to individuals under the minimum purchase age by parents, guardians, friends, or others.
Social supply of alcohol to under 18s: Quantitative research from the 2019/20 Alcohol Use in New Zealand survey (AUiNZ) is a study that measured behaviours, attitudes, and norms on the social supply of alcohol to under 18s. Quantitative analysis methods examined data, using nine outcome survey measures from the 2019/20 Alcohol Use in New Zealand survey (AUiNZ).
A complementary report, Attitudes and behaviours on supplying alcohol to under 18s, explores the qualitative responses from the same sample.
