ABSTRACT
The present study examined recent alcohol use (past 30 days) among 7th - 12th grade students (N = 54,366) in 133 schools. Results indicated that the majority of students felt alcohol use was harmful and difficult to access. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses revealed that students at highest risk for recent alcohol use were those who perceived alcohol use to be fairly easy/very easy to access, felt use was not harmful/somewhat harmful, and had parents and peers who disapproved of tobacco, alcohol, and marijuana use. These findings should be considered when developing programs to prevent underage drinking.
