Divorce and Drinking: An Analysis of Russian Data

Abstract

This study uses data on 374 respondents, aged 16 and older, from the Moscow Oblast Survey to examine the relationship between alcohol consumption and divorce in Russia. A logit regression model of drinking in Moscow finds that both divorced and single persons have elevated risks of drinking relative to married persons. This relationship is independent of control variables including gender, education level, and religiosity. Hence, although Russian alcohol consumption has been largely typified as a reaction to macrosociological problems such as terrorism and chronic shortages of consumer goods, a Western model of divorce and drinking is supported.
