Objective: Population surveys typically produce underestimates of alcohol consumption of approximately 40%–50%. Researchers often undertake a uniform adjustment of survey data to weight estimates such that they match measures of consumption based on sales or tax data. This study explored whether there are differential rates of underestimation in ... http://www.jsad.com/jsad/article/Underreporting_in_Alcohol_Surveys_Whose_Drinking_Is_Underestimated/5039.html http://www.jsad.com/jsad/article/Underreporting_in_Alcohol_Surveys_Whose_Drinking_Is_Underestimated/5039.html Empty Alcohol Containers and Breath Alcohol Analysis Measures of Alcohol Consumption at a College Volleyball Championship Objective: This article provides information on the amount of alcohol consumed by students during college sports events.
