Age

Rates of current alcohol use were above 60 percent for age groups 21-25, 26-29, 30-34, 35-39, and 40-44 in 1995. For younger and older age groups rates were lower. Young adult (18-25 years old) drinkers were the most likely to binge or drink heavily. About half of the drinkers in this age group were binge drinkers and about one in five were heavy drinkers (Figure 8).
