This paper reports changes in drinking problems among Whites, Blacks, and Hispanics between 1984 and 1992.
A probability sample including 1,777 Whites, 1,947 Blacks, and 1,453 Hispanics in the United States adult household population was interviewed in 1984.
In 1992 a subsample consisting of 788 Whites, 723 Blacks, and 703 Hispanics was reinterviewed.
Results show a decrease in problem prevalence among Whites, stability among Blacks, and an increase among Hispanics.
Problem incidence was higher among Hispanics than among Whites and Blacks, put problem remission was higher among Whites.
Women had a lower problem incidence but a higher problem remission than men, independent of ethnicity.
The two best predictors of problem status in 1992 were reporting a problem in 1984 and reporting a high level of consumption in 1984.
