Delaney L, Harmon C & Wall P (2008) Behavioral economics and drinking behavior: Preliminary results from an Irish college study, Economic Inquiry, 46 (1), pp. 29-36.
This article examines the results of single-equation regression models of the determinants of alcohol consumption patterns among college students modeling a rich variety of covariates including gender, family and peer drinking, tenure, personality, risk perception, time preferences, and age of drinking onset. The results demonstrate very weak income effects and very strong effects of personality, peer drinking (in particular closest friend), time preferences, and other substance use. The task of future research is to verify these results and assess causality using more detailed methods
