Alcohol consumption pattern by self-perceived drinking levels of respondent, comparing self to others, n = 1193. Respondents' perceptions of their own alcohol consumption in relation to consumption by other students. The responses for items measuring normative beliefs, i.e. how much do you think that you drink compared to other students?, were analysed in combination with stated alcohol consumption, expressed here as low or high risk.
