dc.description.abstract The Student Alcohol Questionnaire was created as part of the Indiana University’s mid-1970s alcohol education program Booze and You’s. The first version of the questionnaire was typed on 7 pages. It entitled: “SAQOriginal75.pdf” and contains 2 items concerning parental drinking which were omitted from other versions of the instrument and from the first national study of student drinking and knowledge of alcohol. The second version was “offset printed” in the late 1970s on 4 pages. It is entitled: “SAQClassic75.pdf.” This version has 8 spaces for “office use only” at the top in which region of the country, school code or other variables can be entered. It is recommended that this “CLASSIC VERSION” of the SAQ be duplicated for research on college student drinking patterns. Numerous publications using this questionnaire can be found in a literature search from the late 1970 onwards. It has been translated in to several languages including Chinese, Polish, Romanian and Spanish to name a few. en
