New findings on health disparities from the National Alcohol Survey

Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
The National Alcohol Survey is one of the longest running sources of nationally representative data on drinking behaviors, surveying the adult US population at about 5-year intervals since the 1960s and using standardized measures and methods since 1979. This session includes recent findings related to racial/ethnic disparities in a variety of alcohol-related outcomes and using sophisticated analytic approaches.
Session Objectives: Describe disparities in alcohol use patterns and associated harms between lager and smaller racial/ethnic minority groups in US national sample and the role of nativity among Black and Latino groups. Identify age-period-cohort trends of alcohol consumption by education levels. Compare alcohol-related injury risks across racial/ethnic groups from a lifetime perspective. Describe racial/ethnic disparities in alcohol-related injury based on volume of consumption and heavy drinking in the US general population.
