THE 1971 SURVEY OF WASHTENAW COUNTY PHYSICIANS CONCERNING ALCOHOLISM AND TRAFFIC SAFETY. SUMMARY REPORT AND CODEBOOK WITH MARGINALS

The report summarizes the results of a questionnaire filled out by 187 Washtenaw County physicians in the fall and winter of 1971-72. The questionnaire was mailed to a two thirds sample of internists, psychiatrists, general practicioners, and osteopaths, and after two follow-up mailings a 62% response rate was achieved. Content areas of the survey include the role of alcohol in traffic accidents, number of drinks and accident risk, drunk driving countermeasures, experience with problem drinkers, diagnosis and treatment of problem drinking, general attitudes toward alcohol problems, and training for giving help to problem drinkers. The survey was carried out in order to obtain baseline information useful to the development and evaluation of the public information program for physicians being carried out by the Washtenaw Alcohol Safety Action Program.
