EXAMINING SOCIAL CLASS DIFFERENCES IN ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION AND HOUSEHOLD CONFLICTS: A QUANTITATIVE APPROACH ON CHRISTIAN CONSUMERS IN BURKINA FASO

Authors

Abstract

The present research purposes are to explore the relationships of social class and alcohol consumption, and the relationships of alcohol consumption and household conflicts in Ouagadougou. A quantitative research design is used to collect data from both primary and secondary sources for analysis using sphinx IQ software. Some self-administered questionnaires were used for data collection. The quantitative results demonstrate that social class is a moderator of alcohol consumption and conflicts. The recommendation is that very poor, poor and middle-class consumers should strongly moderate their alcohol consumption, because they are those who are more affected by the negative effects of alcohol intake.
Keywords: Social Class, Alcohol Consumption, Household Conflicts, Ouagadougou.
