Back to Derived Variables and Risk Factors.

*Data in this table were derived from the alcohol consumption questions.
Yes = Respondents who report they did drink in the past 30 days and who did have five or more drinks (for males) or four or more drinks (for females) on one or more occasions in the past month.
No = Respondents who report they did not drink in the past 30 days or did NOT have five or more drinks (for males) or four or more drinks (for females) on one or more occasions in the past month.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2011 are NOT comparable to previous years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2011 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.

^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.
