  1. The influence of acculturation on attitudes toward alcohol and alcohol use within the Punjabi community : An exploratory analysis.

    Article - En anglais

    A number of authors have found that acculturation and alcohol use are significantly related.

    In general, as a person becomes more acculturated within a new country, levels of use of alcohol and alcohol-related problems tend to become more similar to the host cultures.

    The purpose of this paper is to examine the relationship between the level of acculturation, attitudes toward alcohol, and the use of alcohol within the Punjabi community of Metropolitan Toronto, while taking a number of demographic variables into account.

    We found that increased levels of acculturation were associated with increased lifetime use of alcohol and more liberal attitudes toward the use of alcohol.

    In addition, those who had lower levels of acculturation were experiencing relatively more alcohol use-related problems.

    Finally, gender was also an important factor in predicting attitudes and behavior associated with alcohol, with women more likely to be abstainers and negative toward the use of alcohol.
