NOTE: Binge Alcohol Use is defined as drinking five or more drinks on the same occasion (i.e., at the same time or within a couple hours of each other) on at least one day in the past 30 days.
NOTE: Estimates are based on a survey-weighted hierarchical Bayes estimation approach.
a Difference between the 2003-2004 estimate and the 2002-2003 estimate is statistically significant at the 0.05 level.
b Difference between the 2003-2004 estimate and the 2002-2003 estimate is statistically significant at the 0.10 level.
