U.S Male and Female Drinking Patterns Becoming More Alike

Presents findings from Converging Patterns of Alcohol Use and Related Outcomes Among Females and Males in the United States, 2002 to 2012. Data from this study indicate that differences between men and women in alcohol consumption and alcohol-related harms might be narrowing in the United States. The authors state that reasons for this trend are unclear and do not appear to be easily explained by recent patterns in employment, pregnancy, or marital status, as their analyses controlled for these variables. The researchers suggest that additional studies are needed to identify the psychosocial and environmental contributors to these changes and to assess their implications for prevention and treatment efforts.
