Binge Drinking Among Youths and Young Adults in the United States: 1979-2006
Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry: July 2009 - Volume 48 - Issue 7 - pp 692-702

Although the overall trend is toward lower rates of binge drinking among youths, likely a result of a higher legal drinking age and other changes in alcohol policy, little improvement has occurred for college students, and increases in binge drinking among women has offset improvements among youths. Understanding these specific demographic trends will help inform prevention efforts.
