Abstract

R. Engs collected the data while on sabbatical at the University of Queensland, Australia (Jan - May 1980). Questionnaires were administered in Queensland, at various colleges and universities, to “helping profession” students: social work, medicine, nursing, seminary, police, psychology, etc. The data are for the Queensland version of the Student Alcohol Questionnaire (available at http://hdl.handle.net/2022/17141). This version of the questionnaire differs from other versions in that it uses Australian spelling and measurements to calculate alcohol content in wine, beer, and spirits. it also includes other drug use. The Tolor-Tamerin scale for attitudes towards alcoholism was also used but due to copyright issues is not included in the questionnaire or calculations and scoring. Calculations and scoring are included on this site. Calculations and scoring in addition to information concerning the reliability of the instrument are found at: http://hdl.handle.net/2022/17185
