Gender Role Conflict and Sex-Specific Drinking Norms: Relationships to Alcohol Use in Undergraduate Women and Men.
Korcuska, James S.; Thombs, Dennis L.
Journal of College Student Development, v44 n2 p204-16 Mar-Apr 2003
Examines drinking motivations among undergraduates across four sections: sociodemographic information, alcohol use and perceived drinking norms, drinking consequences, and the Gender Role Conflict Scale (GRCS). Findings suggest undergraduate alcohol use in both sexes was best explained by same-sex, peer drinking norms. Gender role conflict and sociodemographic variables had substantially weaker associations with drinking behavior. (Contains 42 references and 3 tables.) (GCP)
