  1. HED Heavy Episodic Drinking assessed by AUDIT item 3, cut-off ≥ 2 p. AUDIT total scale cut-off for risk-use was ≥ 6 p. Categorical variable was dichotomized. Genders were analyzed in separate models, and parent-rated predictors were analyzed in separate models. Females n = 85, males n = 77. Cat = Categorical variable RN 2 = Nagelkerke pseudo R2. With correction for multiple testing using the α for significance was set to .01 and CI to 99%
