The data presented in this paper reports alcohol related social disorder between 1993 and 1998 among young persons aged 14-19 and 20-24 years living in rural areas of Australia. Rates of alcohol related social disorder in these age groups in rural areas are compared with rates for older rural Australians and with rates in metropolitan areas.
