* S.S. = Statistical Significance: s+ indicates that the county estimate is greater than the statewide rate; s-, less than the statewide rate; a blank, not different from the statewide rate.
** % based on less than 50 respondents total or fewer that 12 in any one of the three age groups may not accurately reflect behavior of the entire county.
NOTE: Age adjustment is based on three age groups: 18-34; 35-54; and 55+, per U.S. Standard Million Population.
***In 2005, the definition of binge drinking for women changed from 5+ drinks of alcohol to 4+ drinks of alcohol on one occasion. Prior to 2005, the binge drinking definition was 5+ drinks of alcohol on one occasion for both genders. The 2004 binge drinking data, based upon 5+ drinks of alcohol on one occasion for both genders, has been combined with 2005-2007 data, so we can include 2004 data, even though the drinks on one occasion changed for women in 2005.
