Back to Derived Variables and Risk Factors.

*Data in this table were derived from the alcohol consumption questions.
1=Yes = Respondents who report they did not drink in the past 30 days and who did not have five or more drinks on an occasion.
No = Respondents who report they did drink in the past 30 days and had five or more drinks on one or more occasions in the past month.

^Use caution in interpreting percentages with a numerator of less than 20. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
