Young adults experience and attitudes towards drinking and                                 driving : A questionnaire study among college students (English)
Abstract [sv]

Varje år dör 125 människor i Sverige i alkoholrelaterade trafikolyckor och ännu fler skadas. Detta medför stora kostnader för samhället och lidande för de som drabbas. Unga vuxna är överrepresenterade i olycksstatistiken för alkoholrelaterade olyckor. Syftet med studien var att undersöka unga vuxna högskolestuderandes (mellan 18-24 år) vanor och attityder till alkohol och bilkörning. Vi gjorde en enkätstudie på en högskola. Antalet informanter uppgick till 269 stycken. De valdes ut genom ett bekvämlighetsurval. Resultatet av studien visade att fanns skillnader mellan män och kvinnors vanor och attityder. Männen var mer riskbenägna än kvinnorna. Det gick att se tendenser att de unga vuxna på högskolan hade negativt avvikande vanor i jämförelse med unga vuxna i övriga landet. För att det ska vara möjligt att göra en jämförelse med andra studier, bör det göras en ny studie på högskolan med ett slumpmässigt urval och ett större antal informanter.

Abstract [en]

Each year 125 people die in Sweden in alcohol related traffic accidents and even more get injured. This cause major financial costs for the society and suffering among those who get affected. Young adults are overrepresented in the statistics over alcohol related accidents. The aim of the study was to examine young adult college students’ (age 18-24) experience and attitudes towards drinking and driving. A questionnaire study was made with 269 participants on the college. The participants were chosen from a convenience sample. The results of the study showed that there were differences between men and women’s experience and attitudes. The men had a greater tendency to take risks than the women. You could see tendencies that the adolescents in the college were negatively deviant in comparison to the young adults in the country. A new study on the college with a larger, random selection ought to be done for it to be possible to make a comparison with other studies.
