Back to Derived Variables and Risk Factors.

*Data in this table were derived from the alcohol consumption questions.
No = Respondents reported having LESS than or equal to 2 drinks/day for MALES and LESS than or equal to 1 drink/day for FEMALES.
Yes = Respondents reported having MORE than 2 drinks/day for MALES and MORE than 1 drink/day for FEMALES.

^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.
