At least nine people under the age of 21 die from alcohol-related causes every day. Underage individuals account for almost 20% of all alcohol consumed in the United States. And each day, more than 5,000 children under the age of 16 take their first taste of alcohol. These are difficult numbers to believe, but the numbers don’t lie.

These insights may be the most helpful and powerful proof of alcohol’s influence on our youth. In this section, we have compiled extensive research concerning underage drinking, from surveys and national statistics to reports, recommendations, and more.
