… comparison of different migration backgrounds and rural vs. urban residence – a representative study
In the years 2007/2008, a representative written survey of N = 44,610 students in the 9th. grade of different school types in Germany was carried out (net sample). Conclusions:
Binge drinking is a common problem behavior in German adolescents. Obviously adolescents with rural residence have fewer alternatives for engaging in interesting leisure activities than adolescents living in cities. This might be one reason for the more problematic consumption patterns there. Common expectations concerning drinking behavior of adolescents of certain cultural backgrounds (‚migrants with Russian background drink more’/ ‚migrants from Arabic respectively Oriental-Islamic countries drink less‘) are only partly affirmed. Possibly, the degree of acculturation to the permissive German alcohol culture plays a role here.
