Back to Alcohol Consumption.

*Heavy drinkers--adult men having more than two drinks per day and adult women having more than one drink per day.

^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.
