Alcohol Use among Hispanic Adolescents: Role of Linguistic Acculturation and Gender.
Epstein, Jennifer A.; Botvin, Gilbert J.; Diaz, Tracy
Journal of Alcohol and Drug Education, v45 n3 p18-32 Spr 2000
Examines the effects of linguistic acculturation (language spoken with friends and parents) and gender on alcohol use among Hispanic adolescents. Results reveal that a greater proportion of bilingual adolescents engaged in drinking than more acculturated adolescents. Within gender, these relationships were found only for boys. Suggests that bilingual Hispanic youth appear at greater risk of alcohol use and drunkenness. (Contains 30 references and 2 tables.) (GCP)
