Back to Alcohol Consumption.

*Binge drinkers--males having five or more drinks on one occasion OR females having four or more drinks on one occasion.

NOTE: For AHEC Regions, results for Area L are least reliable due to small sample size.

^Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50, % = 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.
