Morgan, Mark and Grube, Joel W (1994) Drinking among post-primary school pupils. General Research Series, Paper No. 164 Dublin: Economic and Social Research Institute.

Prior to publication of this paper, the main source of information on under-age drinking and other substance use in Ireland was a 1984 survey by the authors of this paper. One of the aims of the survey reported on in this paper was to find out what changes, if any, had occurred since the previous survey was conducted, in terms of the prevalence and pattern of drinking behaviour. A number of additional aspects of the factors associated with alcohol use were also addressed - in particular, access to, and location of, drinking. A sample of Californian high-school pupils was surveyed at
the same time, thus providing an opportunity for cross-cultural comparisons.
