Abstract: In 2014, around one in four adolescents in the Region first consumed alcohol at age 13 or younger, and just under one in 10 were first drunk at this early age. • Gender differences are not present in all countries and regions, but when present, boys are more likely to report early alcohol initiation and early drunkenness. • Early alcohol initiation has declined in most countries and regions. On average, early alcohol initiation across all countries and regions declined from 46% in 2002 to 28% in 2014. Similarly, early drunkenness more than halved, from 17% to 8%, over this period. • A significant increase in alcohol use at age 13 or younger was reported in Slovenia among both boys and girls and in Greece among girls only. • The biggest changes in early initiation of alcohol and drunkenness were seen in the Nordic and Ireland/Great Britain subregions, which had the highest prevalence in 2002. Less change was seen in the southern Europe/ Mediterranean subregion
