Alcohol consumption and use norms among Chinese Americans and Korean Americans.

Author information

Behavioral Biology Laboratory, University of Hawaii, Honolulu 96822.


Homeland (Taiwan) Chinese are very low in alcohol consumption, while homeland Koreans are very high in alcohol consumption. Neither Chinese Americans nor Korean Americans constitute a large portion of the residents of Hawaii, but across four surveys, data were obtained from 212 Chinese-American and 72 Korean-American college students or students' parents. Persons from these groups do not differ greatly. Korean Americans are slightly higher in reported alcohol use and in judgments of the nature of normal alcohol use. The two groups do not differ in their judgments of the nature of problem alcohol use.
