THE FREQUENCY OF BLOOD ALCOHOL CONTENTS IN EXCESS OF THREE PARTS PER THOUSAND (IN BERLIN-WEST 1956-1976)

HAEUFIGKEIT DER BLUTALKOHOLKONZENTRATION UEBER 3 PROMILLE (BERLIN-WEST 1956-1976)

THE PROBLEM OF FREQUENCIES OF BLOOD ALCOHOL CONTENTS IN EXCESS OF THREE PARTS PER THOUSAND HAS BEEN TREATED BY MANY AUTHORS IN THE PAST. IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT A NOTICEABLE SCATTER IN THESE FREQUENCIES OCCURS IN THE VARIOUS REGIONS STUDIED. THIS QUESTION WAS STUDIED ONCE MORE IN BERLIN, AS MORE HOMOGENEOUS CONDITIONS APPLY IN THAT CITY THAN ELSEWHERE. THE VERY LOW PROPORTION OF BLOOD ALCOHOL CONTENTS RECORDED IN EXCESS OF THREE PARTS PER THOUSAND (0.36%) IN THE PERIOD FROM 1956 TO 1965, IN COMPARISON TO OTHER REGIONS, ROSE ONLY MARGINALLY IN THE FOLLOWING TEN AND A HALF YEARS BY 0.087% TO 0.447%. OTHER RESULTS OF THE INVESTIGATIONS ARE GIVEN. ALTHOUGH, IT IS CLEAR THAT A FULL EXPLANATION FOR THE FREQUENCY OF HIGH BLOOD ALCOHOL LEVELS IS NOT POSSIBLE, AS THIS DEPENDS ON VARIOUS FACTORS REQUIRING FURTHER STUDY, AN ATTEMPT HAS BEEN MADE TO DETERMINE THE CAUSES FOR THE DIFFERENT RESULT IN WEST BERLIN.
