Describing and predicting alcohol use-related harm : An analysis of the Yukon alcohol and drug survery.
During 1990 the Yukon Bureau of Statistics conducted an alcohol and drug survey with a sample of 1,348 residents of the Territory, aged 15 and over.
Over three-quarters of the sample reported experiencing at least one type of harm from others'drinking during the past year, and over a half experienced two or more types of harm.
Among the main predictors of prevalence and extent of harm were respondents'age (younger), a greater number of drinks per occasion, close associates with alcohol problems, and residing in smaller communities.
The results are discussed in terms of their relevance to identifying vulnerable groups and informing policy aimed at reducing alcohol use-related harm.
