Drinking in the Backwoods: An Analytical Literature Review of Rural Youth Drinking

2011, Master of Arts (MA), Ohio University, Sociology (Arts and Sciences).
The following is a literature review aiming to examine the use of alcohol by rural youth. The use of alcohol by American youth is prevalent with an abundance of literature concentrating on the generalized subject of youth alcohol use and urban youth use. In the subsequent paper I focus on the existing literature that describes the trends of youth alcohol use with the goal of concentrating mostly on those youths living in rural areas of the United States. Three national surveys were referenced as well as numerous publications on the subjects of youth drinking and rural areas. I combined the literature on rural areas and youth drinking to create a generalized understanding of youth drinking in rural areas.
