Study by PHI’s Alcohol Research Group Linking Neighborhood Status to Problem Drinking Featured in U.S. News and World Report
WEDNESDAY, OCT. 10 (HealthDay News) — People who live in low-income neighborhoods in the United States are generally less likely to drink alcohol than those in rich neighborhoods, but certain groups of people in low-income neighborhoods are at increased risk for problem drinking, a new study finds.
Black and Hispanic men in low-income neighborhoods are more likely to drink than those in high-income neighborhoods, and black men in disadvantaged neighborhoods are more likely to be heavy drinkers, the researchers found.
