Social Norms in College Students
What actually happens within the population of college students? The statistics for most of the questions were published by a survey on College Life. Almost 48,000 students across the USA, from 92 colleges and universities of all sizes, responded to this questionnaire in 2017. The last two questions come from research by Lisa Wade of Occidental College, who reports her findings of five years and multiples institutions in her book American Hookup.
