The sample for this study comprised 190 three member sets of father, mother, and adult son or daughter who were first interviewed in 1960 as part of Cardiovascular Examination I of the Tecumseh Community Health Study.
At that time, alcohol data were collected from self-reports for both parents and offspring.
In 1977 alcohol data were again collected for the adult offspring only, from self-reports.
In 1960 offspring's drinking was significantly related to both fathers' and mothers' drinking and remained so in 1977 despite shifts over time in the proportions of offspring across five alcohol use categories.
The majority of offspring did not fall into their parents' category, but the mode by and large reflected the parent category.
