Drinking Behaviors, Expectancies and Perceived Social Norms Among Diverse College Women (Survey) Journal of Alcohol & Drug Education read online review & book description:

Abstract Drinking behaviors, positive expectancies regarding alcohol, and perceptions of social norms regarding drinking on campus of female college students were compared to the responses of the men. The survey responses of 935 university students attending a large, ethnically diverse, public university were analyzed by gender and ethnicity. Females reported fewer occasions of heavy drinking and fewer drinks per occasion. Females also reported lower perceptions of drinking norms among their friends and lower levels of positive expectancies regarding alcohol than their male counterparts. However, Caucasian women reported heavy drinking as often as the Caucasian males. Since the health risks of drinking are significant for college women, programs should seek to lower perception of social norms and positive expectancies regarding alcohol especially among Caucasian female students.
