Due to the problem of correlation of errors inherent in the difference or ratio scores typically used to quantify individual differences in acute sensitivity and tolerance to alcohol, it is recommended that residual scores from regression analyses be used instead for such quantification. Conceptualizations of acute sensitivity and tolerance and problems with the reliability of change scores are also discussed.
