건강관련 습관은 개인의 건강수준을 결정하는 중요한 요소 중 하나로 특히 대학생 시기에 결정된 건강습관은 대학생 시기뿐만 아 니라 이후의 건강에 영향을 미치는 것으로 알려져 있다[1]. 대학생 시기가 건강과 관련하여 중요한 시기임에도 불구하고 대학생의 건 강증진 행위 정도는 일반 성인보다 낮고, 건강에 대한 중요성을 간과하기 쉬운 시기로 알려져 있다.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of general, health, and alcohol-related characteristics on blood pressure and stress according to the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT). Methods: This was a descriptive study. From participants in the 2013 Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 319 participants who responded to the survey when they were attending college or university were selected. Data were analyzed using the SPSS Win 23.0 program for composite sample data reflecting the composite design elements of stratification, colonization, and weighting. Results: Mean age of onset of alcohol drinking was 17.91±0.16 years, the average AUDIT score was 7.56±0.41, and 25 (9.1%) participants fell into the high-risk drinking group. In the high-risk AUDIT group, systolic blood pressure was influenced by age, gender, institution, health status, body mass index, and suicidal ideation, and the explanatory power of the model (R2) was 75.0%. For diastolic blood pressure, institution and health status were the influential factors, and R2 was 66.2%. Predictors of stress were health status, depression, and the age of onset of drinking, and R2 was 57.2%. Conclusion: It was confirmed that the explanatory power of the variables in models of systolic and diastolic blood pressure and stress is greater in those with higher scores on AUDIT.
