PUERTO RICO ALCOHOL SAFETY ACTION PROJECT. SECTION III. VOLUME II. TRENDS IN KNOWLEDGE, ATTITUDE AND BEHAVIOR RELATING TO DRINKING AND DRIVING

The project is a federally funded demonstration effort which seeks to establish the potential effectiveness of various countermeasures aimed at reducing the incidence of alcohol-related fatal and injury-producing motor vehicle accidents. In all, 35 projects were operational in cities, counties, multi-county areas and states throughout the nation. The present paper contains a final analysis of four Household Surveys, conducted in Puerto Rico during the 1972-75 period. A description of the survey objectives, procedure and design is given. Analysis of drinking behavior, including self-classification, the most common drink, number of days drinking, and most drinks in a day is presented. Finally, information concerning the respondents' familiarity with alcohol-related subjects is reviewed.
