Abstract: Estadísticas sobre consumo de alcohol entre la comunidad hispanoamericana/Latina. Esta población bebe menos que la mayoría de otros grupos étnicos y culturales en los Estados Unidos, con cerca del 60% reportando que había consumido al menos una copa en el último año y un 25% indicando que son abstemios de por vida. (Por el contrario, las cifras de los blancos no hispanos son 70% y 14% respectivamente.) También son menos propensos a desarrollar problemas de dependencia. Sin embargo, aquellos hispanos que beben son más propensos a beber pesadamente, con 42 por ciento diciendo que tienen una media de beber 3 tragos o más de bebida por día (frente al 32% de blancos no hispanos).. Ellos también se emborrachan más a menudo, con un 42% que informan haber consumido al menos 4 tragos por lo menos una vez en el año pasado. Las mujeres hispanas tradicionalmente no beben mucho, pero las investigaciones indican que, especialmente entre las mujeres jóvenes y las mujeres de origen puertorriqueño, este patrón está cambiando.///Statistics on alcohol use among the Hispanic-American community. This population drinks less than most other ethnic/cultural groups in the U.S., with about 60% reporting that they had consumed at least one drink in the past year and 25% stating that they are 'life-time abstainers. (By contrast, figures for non-hispanic whites are 70% and 14% respectively.) They are also less likely to develop problems with dependence. However, those Hispanics who do drink are more likely to drink heavily, with 42% saying that they average more than 3 drinks per drinking day (compared to 32% of non-hispanic whites.). They also binge drink more often, with 42% or drinkers reporting having consumed at least 4 drinks at least once in the past year. Hispanic women traditionally do not drink very much, but research indicates that, especially among younger women, and women of Puerto Rican origin, this pattern is changing.

Abstract: Datos del “2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health” sobre el uso de drogas entre los adolescentes hispanos. En comparación con otros adolescentes, los jóvenes hispanos tenían promedios más bajos que los generales de tabaquismo, consumo de marihuana y uso indebido de medicamentos recetados. Las tasas de uso de alcohol fueron similares a los de la población en general. Aunque las tasas de consumo de alcohol han disminuido desde el año 2008, se ha incrementado el consumo de otras drogas. El uso de sustancias también varía ampliamente entre los subgrupos hispanos. La juventud hispanoamericana es más probable que informe uso en el mes pasado de todas las sustancias, mientras que las tasas más bajas se observan entre los mejicano-americanos (Alcohol) y dominicano-americanos (cigarrillos, marihuana y medicamentos de prescripción). Los jóvenes nacidos en los Estados Unidos tienen más probabilidades de usarlas que los inmigrantes.///Data from the 2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health on drug use among Hispanic adolescents. Compared with other adolescents, Hispanic youth had lower than average rates of cigarette smoking, marijuana use and misuse of prescription drugs. Alcohol use rates were similar to the general population. While rates of alcohol use have declined since 2008, other drug use has increased. Substance use also varies widely between Hispanic subgroups. Spanish-American youth are most likely to report past-month use of all substances, while lowest rates are seen among Mexican-Americans (Alcohol) and Dominican-Americans (cigarettes, marijuana and prescription drugs.) U.S. born youth are more likely to use than immigrants.
