Research on unemployment has paid only little attention to drinking and drinking problems.
From the 1970s onwards the association of drinking and unemployment has come under systematic study.
Contrasting tendencies emerge from this research.
This paper distinguishes three instances of drinking and drinking problems and examines their association with employment status, i.e., (i) frequency of drinking, (ii) frequency of intoxication, and (iii) frequency of health problems due to drinking.
A panel survey was conducted in 1983-1984, consisting of a sample of Finnish men and women, originally jobseekers in industry.
Prevalence data and results of logistic regression analyses on the association of the three instances of drinking and drinking problems with employment status are presented.
