Alcohol-Related Consequences Among Racial and Ethnic Minority First-Year College Students

by Alexa Plisiewicz
Alcohol-related consequences among racial/ethnic minority college students is a public health concern. The present study examines whether the factor structure of B-YAACQ generalizes to this racial/ethnic minority sample (e.g., Asian, Black, Multiracial, Latinx; N=317). Differences by sex were also examined. Results revealed that blackout drinking and sexual consequences were reliable factors among the racial/ethnic minority sample. The factor structure held for both sexes. Findings suggest that future drinking interventions may need to be culturally tailored.
