US Alcohol Use Prevalence 2002 to 2012

$179 / year

This dataset provides alcohol use prevalence estimates for any drinking by county, year, and sex for all states and counties, the District of Columbia, and the US as a whole for 2002-2012. “Any” drinking defined as at least one drink of any alcoholic beverage in the past 30 days. The data also include changes by percent for the period.

Complexity

This dataset was from the study “Drinking patterns in US counties from 2002 to 2012,” published in the American Journal of Public Health in April 2015. The estimates were produced by applying small area models to data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS).

This study was conducted to estimate the prevalence of any drinking and binge drinking from 2002 to 2012 and heavy drinking from 2005 to 2012 in every US county. Results showed that there are large differences between counties in all measures of alcohol use. In 2012, any drinking prevalence ranged from 11.0% to 78.7%. In conclusion, there are large differences within the United States in levels and recent trends in alcohol use. These alcohol use prevalence estimates can be used as an aid in designing and implementing public health interventions to reduce the burden of excessive alcohol use.
