Interesting Facts and Statistics:
In 2005, 59.8 percent of teens aged 12 to 17 reported that they had talked at least once in the past year with at least one of their parents about the dangers of drug, tobacco, or alcohol use—similar to the 60.3 percent in 2004. Among teens who reported having had such conversations with their parents, rates of current alcohol, cigarette, and illegal drug use were lower than among teens who did not talk about substance abuse. For example, past month binge drinking was reported by 9.2 percent of teens who had talked with their parents about drug, tobacco, or alcohol use compared with 11.0 percent of those who had not. Past month use of marijuana was lower among teens who had talked with their parents (6.4 percent) than among those who had not (7.4 percent).
Among adults aged 18 or older, the rate of past month alcohol use increased with increasing levels of education. Among adults with less than a high school education, 36.8 percent were current drinkers in 2008, significantly lower than the 67.9 percent of college graduates who were current drinkers. However, among adults aged 26 or older, binge and heavy alcohol use rates were lower among college graduates (19.5 and 4.6 percent, respectively) than among those who had not completed college (23.2 vs. 7.0 percent, respectively).
