Alcohol consumption and injury in the general population : from a national sample.
Research Society on Alcoholism. Annual Meting. San Antonio TX (USA), 1993/06/19.
The association of alcohol consumption with injuries is well documented in the literature.
The majority of data for non-fatal injuries has come from emergency room (ER) studies, however, and little is known of how representative ER samples are of injuries in the general population or of the actual risk at which drinking places the individual for accidental injury.
Data were collected (1990) from a national probability household sample (N=2058; weighted N=1150) on:
the respondent's most recent injury;
whether treatment was obtained for that injury, and where;
drinking prior to injury;
quantity and frequency (Q-F) of usual drinking;
frequency of drunkenness;
experiences associated with alcohol dependence;
and social consequences related to drinking-all during the last year.
