Every study has limitations – and ours is no exception!  However, our numbers are very consistent with what we see reported by youth in the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey, trends in underage drinking, and a national study by the American Medical Association of parents of teens (10).  By looking at both these other studies and surveys, we feel confident that the numbers in our survey are close to the true numbers in Sedro-Woolley.
