The Drinking Practices of Students at the University of Minnesota.
Matross, Ronald; And Others
A mailed survey was conducted of the drinking practices of students at the University of Minnesota. Responses were received from 402 of the 496 individuals in a random sample of students at the Twin Cities campus. Key findings include: (1) the majority of students, 56 percent of the men and 61 percent of the women, were classed as moderate drinkers; (2) among the male respondents, 24 percent were judged to be heavy drinkers and 10 percent were estimated to be potential problem drinkers; (3) among female respondents 10 percent were classed as heavy drinkers, while 5 percent were estimated to be potential problem drinkers; and (4) for both sexes the proportions of heavy drinkers and estimated potential problem drinkers did not differ from 1964 national norms.
