Generational Effects of Alcohol Consumption in Russia 2000-2017
Economics
(Bachelor’s programme)
2019
Nowadays, the majority of countries face a problem of excessive alcohol consumption. Surprisingly, developed regions suffer even more from enormous consumption than less developed countries. Governments can establish a state program aimed at target groups in order to reduce alcohol consumption and overcome such an issue, but there is a question: what exactly are target groups? In this paper, we investigate which factors inevitably affect consumption of four distinct alcoholic beverages as well as pure alcohol among seven age groups in Russia. Moreover, we try to determine the presence of the generational effect which usually lies in the unexplained part of a model. The generational differences can be produced by political decisions or changes in attitudes. In the paper, we employ several econometric methods to prove that the generational effect indeed took place in the Russian Federation, after which we calculate to what extent it existed.
