For adults aged 20+, HASBEER reports whether the respondent drinks beer. Response options included "never", "occasionally", "once or twice a week", and "three or more times a week".

The question for HASBEER was asked for a sub-sample of randomly selected persons age 20 and over; NHIS automatically classifies persons who were selected but did not complete the questions as "unknown" for this variable. Users may choose to use this variable in combination with SUBSRESP77, which reports the person's sub-sample status in 1977.


There are no comparability issues.
