For sample adults age 18 to 44, ALCMAXDAYOFT reports how often in the past year the respondent drank the largest number of drinks consumed in a day. This variable should be used in conjunction with ALCMAXDAYR, which reports the largest number of drinks the respondent had in a single day in the past 12 months.

ALCMAXDAYOFT was part of a 1991 supplement on drug and alcohol use, sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It included the questions on the types and frequency of illegal substances, and age at first use. For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.


ALCMAXDAYOFT is only available for 1991.
