This report describes the alcohol consumption of adolescents and young adults who participated in the Bogalusa Heart Study, 1981 to 1991.
Data were collected in three cross-sectional surveys of school-age children (11 to 19 years) and three surveys of young adults (18 to 32 years).
White males had the highest proportion of drinkers and Black females had the lowest.
By the end of the decade, adult White and Black male drinkers were about equal.
Most individuals drank once or twice a week, but daily drinkers had the highest weekly alcohol intake.
An association between alcohol and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol was found only in the latest survey and probably reflects the aging of the cohort.
