Excessive, or "binge," drinking is defined in NSDUH, MTF, and NESARC
as consuming five or more drinks in an evening, although the instruments vary in the specified time frames given (i.
Participants in the NESARC
study also were assessed using the 12-item Short Form Health Survey version 2 (SF-12v2), which provided the question about how much they had felt downhearted or depressed in the past 4 weeks (J.

was based on a multistage sampling design that oversampled young adults, Hispanics, and African-Americans to obtain reliable statistical estimation in these subpopulations and to ensure appropriate representation of racial/ethnic groups.
We estimated equation (5) using linear probability models rather than logit fixed effects techniques because linear probability estimation allowed us to incorporate NESARC
sample weights, to cluster standard errors around primary sample units, and to estimate marginal effects.
