***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.
