From the 2008 National Survey on Drug Use and Health:
How much do people risk harming themselves physically and in other ways when they have five or more drinks of an alcoholic beverage once or twice a week?
While the question used to obtain baseline data takes into account all kinds of harm, some respondents may focus on physical harm only. Consequently the measure is a very conservative estimate of the perceived harm. A description of NSDUH was published by SAMHSA.
Baseline data has been revised from 40.5 to 40.0 percent. As a result, the target has been revised from 44.6 to 44.0 percent
