  1. 1 unit corresponds to 12 g of pure alcohol
  2. a ten observations were excluded in the unadjusted analyses on weekly consumption in men, seven observations in the unadjusted analyses on binge drinking 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
