Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine drunkenness status among immigrants and non-immigrants youths. The other purpose was also to investigate the relation between depression and parenting behaviors with drunkenness among immigrant and Swedish adolescents. The participants in this study were 508 students, 262 boys (51.6%) and 246 girls (48.4%), and their age varied between 12-15 years (Grade 7 and Grade 9). 62.4% (N = 309) of the participants were non-immigrant, and 32.1% (N = 159) were immigrant. T-test and linear regression analyses were performed in SPSS. The results in general suggest that immigrants and non-immigrants youths get drunk approximately similar. Results also showed drunkenness at T1 did no predicted depression at T2 in both ethnic groups. Gender and depression variables have significant relation with depression at T2 and these variables can predict depression among adolescents in 8

th grade. In addition, the relation between parenting behaviors with drunkenness was not significant for both ethnicity groups. In conclusion ethnicity did not impact drunkenness and depression status among adolescents.
