Text Description of Infographic:
Most 12- to 17-year-olds do not drink, but the percentage who use alcohol and report drunkenness increases by grade. Having a friend who drinks is an early warning sign that strongly predicts your child’s future drinking level.1
An infographic bar chart, titled “Past-Month Alcohol Use and Drunkenness Reported by 8th-, 10th-, and 12th-Grade Students2,” shows the following: At 8th grade, alcohol use is 10.2% and drunkenness is 3.5%. At 10th grade, alcohol use is 25.7% and drunkenness is 12.8%. At 12th grade, alcohol use is 39.2% and drunkenness is 26%.
