The relationship of alcohol use to sexual activity in a U.S. national sample.
Alcohol and Drug Dependence. International congress. Glasgow GBR, 1992/08.
Recent reports have indicated that the use of alcohol is related to sexual behavior (such as unprotected intercourse) that is high-risk for HIV infection.
However, most of these studies have collected data from convenience samples, using measures of varying specificity.
This paper describes a study designed to investigate the relationship of alcohol use to unsafe sexual activity in a representative sample of adults.
Data were collected from 2058 respondents as part of a survey of a multi-stage area probability sample of the adult household population of the 48 contiguous United States.
The interview instrument included measures of alcohol use, sexual activity and condom use.
