  1. 1 unit corresponds to 12 g of pure alcohol
  2. a six observations were excluded in the unadjusted analyses on weekly consumption in men and five observations in the unadjusted analyses in women due to missing observations on all variables
  3. b These analyses are based on men from the Metropolit 1953 Danish male birth cohort (N = 2746) as information on binge drinking was not available in the Danish Longitudinal Study on Work, Unemployment and Health cohort
