95.0 (2007–08)
Target: 
100

Comparable Healthy People 2010 Objective: 
Adapted from HP2010 objective
Questions Used to Obtain the National Baseline Data: 

    From the 2008 National Survey on Drug Use and Health:

    [NUMERATOR AND DENOMINATOR:]

    Are you currently pregnant?

    1. Yes
    2. No
    3. Don’t know
    4. Refused

    [NUMERATOR:]

    The next few questions return to the topic of alcohol. Remember that by a “drink,”
    we mean a can or bottle of beer, a glass of wine or a wine cooler, a shot of liquor, or a mixed drink with liquor in it. We are not asking about times when you only had a sip or two from a drink.

    Earlier, the computer recorded that you drank at least one alcoholic beverage within the past 30 days, that is, since [FILLDATE]. Please think about the last time you drank any alcoholic beverage. How many drinks did you have at that time?

    1. Number of Drinks______________(0-90)
    2. Don’t know
    3. Refused

    Have you ever had 5 or more drinks on the same occasion? By “occasion” we mean at the same time or within a couple of hours of each other.

    1. Yes
    2. No
    3. Don’t know
    4. Refused

    Have you ever had 4 or more drinks on the same occasion?

    1. Yes
    2. No
    3. Don’t know
    4. Refused
Data Collection Frequency: 
Annual
Methodology Notes: 

    Binge drinking for women is defined as drinking 4 or more alcoholic beverages at the same time or within a couple of hours of each other during the past 30 days. To ensure adequate precision of estimates for pregnant women, estimates are based on combined data 2 years.

Changes Between HP2010 and HP2020: 
This objective differs from Healthy People 2010 objective 16-17b in that for objective 16-17b, binge drinking was defined as 5 or more drinks on one occasion. For this objective, binge drinking is defined as 4 or more drinks on one occasion.

Revision History

Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.

Description of Changes Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch: 
During regular data collection and processing checks, errors were identified in the NSDUH data. These errors affected the data for Pennsylvania (2006-2010) and Maryland (2008-2009). These errors had minimal impact on the national estimates and no effect on direct estimates for the other 48 states and the District of Columbia. Comparing estimates for Pennsylvania, Maryland, the mid-Atlantic division, and the Northeast region were of most concern. However, the baseline and target values did not change as a result.
