Alcohol involvement is common in many fatal injuries.
This study examines drinking behavior in a nationally representative sample of US adult decedents aged 25 through 64 years and its association with cause of death.
Proxy-reported information from the 1986 National Mortality Followback Survey was used to profile the decedents'usual frequency and quantity of drinking.
The association of drinking behavior with underlying cause of death was assessed while adjusting for demographic characteristics.
