Assessment of self-reported alcohol use and the general well- being of college students
MetadataShow full item record
Surveys, including estimates of typical weekly alcohol use and DUpuy's General Well-Being Schedule (GWBS), were randomly mailed to undergraduate, degree-seeking students at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse during the spring semester of 1990. Of the 860 students who received surveys, 41.5% were returned (N = 357). There were 119 males and 238 females, primarily between the ages of 19 and 24 (n = 288). Surveys were analyzed to assess whether any inverse correlation existed between self-reported alcohol use and the GWBS total score or its subscales. Results showed that none of the null hypotheses were rejected, indicating there were no significant inverse relationships between alcohol use and the GWBS total score (p < .05) or between alcohol use and the GWBS subscales (p < .0083). However, a weak but statistically significant positive relationship was detected between alcohol use and the Emotional-Behavioral Control Subscale.
