  1. Fulltext. Black-white differences in alcohol use by women : Baltimore survey findings.

    Article - En anglais


    After controlling for differences in sociodemographic characteristics, black women were found to be at no greater risk than whites for heavy drinking or for suffering from alcohol abuse or dependence.

    Racial differences, however, were observed in heavy drinking by years of education.

    A similar percentage of black women and white women who had not completed high school were heavy drinkers, but black women with 12 or more years of education were less likely to be heavy drinkers than whites with comparable education.
