Alcohol Consumption Among Hospitality Students and Hospitality Employees: A Replication and Pilot Study


2010 I-CHRIE Annual Conference


This is a descriptive study that investigates alcohol consumption among hospitality students and hospitality employees. A comparison is made to other majors and to those employed elsewhere as well as to prior research in Scandinavia and the US. In a general sense the claim that hospitality students and hospitality employees consume alcohol at higher rates than students and employees with different affiliations is confirmed. Explanations for the disparate alcohol consumption are proposed.
