This concern mirrors one of the Department of Health and Human Services Secretary s goals which is to reduce the prevalence of alcohol problems among children and youth.

As part of his strategy to meet this goal, the Secretary sponsored Healthy People Healthy Environments: The Secretary s National Conference on Alcohol-Related Injuries on March 23-, 1992. This conference served as a call-to-action and a forum for health professionals to help advance the alcohol and injury-related objectives of Healthy People 2000. This study is one in a series conducted by the OIG related to youth and alcohol.

A related report, Youth and Alcohol: Drinking and Crime (OEI-09-92-00260), describes the association between alcohol and youth crime.Although extensive research exists related to the negative consequences of adult alcohol use, few national studies have attempted to assess the relationship between underage drinking and rape, sexual assault, suicide, and other harmful incidents. Researchers who attempt to link youth alcohol use with injuries and other problems face legal and scientific barriers.

For example, one survey found that emergency room physicians rarely will administer blood alcohol tests unless an injury was automobile-related or the test is vital to a patients treatment.Most studies and data related to the negative consequences of underage drinking focus on traffic fatalities.

For instance, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that 34.8 percent of drivers ages 18 to 20 and 18.9 percent of drivers ages 15 to 17 who were involved in fatal automobile crashes in 1989 had alcohol in their system. Although few national data concerning other problems exist researchers focusing on local populations have uncovered startling data concerning alcohol use among youth who experience serious injuries or unintentional death.
