It comes as little surprise that college students sometimes binge drink, but new research shows that college women are more likely to drink unhealthy amounts of alcohol on a weekly basis than are college men.
Throughout the study, 15% of women exceeded weekly drinking limits compared to 12% of men. In addition, men's weekly drinking appeared to go down throughout the year, but not so for women.
Women drink less than men do
Hoeppner's study included 992 college students: 575 females and 417 males. The students provided biweekly reports of their daily drinking habits through a Web-based questionnaire.
