Girls outdrink boys -- only at parties

January 7, 2008

A study by researchers at the Center for Alcohol and Drug Studies at San Diego State University finds that post-secondary girls are drinking more and wearing less when attending parties.  Parties are identified as one of few events where female students drink more than their male peers.  61.3% of survey respondents said they went to parties to socialize.  40% went to get drunk.  21% were there to meet a sexual partner.
