Predictors of alcohol consumption in Mexican-American graduate students

Noah Vincent Clayton, University of Texas at El Paso


The relationship between self-reported retrospective drinking during undergraduate studies, tension reduction and relaxation expectancies, frequency of alcohol related consequences, acculturation to Anglo culture, and average 90-day alcohol consumption was assessed in Mexican-American graduate students. The results indicated that only frequency of alcohol related consequences was predictive of average 90-day alcohol consumption. Although the majority of the findings in the present study were null they do contribute to the under studied area of alcohol consumption in graduate students. ^
