A cohort living in Copenhagen County, originally consisting of 1198 persons, 577 men and 621 women, 40-years of age in 1976, was reexamined in 1981, and again in 1987.
Of the original cohort 1052 (88%) participated in 1976, 992 (84%) in 1981, and 965 (85%) in 1987.
The purpose of this study was to describe changes in alcohol consumption in the cohort, with the view of identifying subgroups, who have changed their alcohol consumption behaviour to a certain extent.
Alcohol consumption was measured by the same questionnaire all three times as to the level of consumption and frequency.
Alcohol consumption peaked in 1981 (45-year olds) with 10.4 drinks on average a week.
