Trend analysis and modelling of gender-specific age, period and birth cohort effects on alcohol abstention and consumption level for drinkers in Great Britain using the General Lifestyle Survey 1984-2009.

Meng Y, Holmes J, Hill-McManus D, Brennan A, Meier PS - Addiction (2013)

Bottom Line: This study aims to disentangle age, period and birth cohort effects to improve our understanding of these trends and suggest groups for targeted interventions to reduce resultant harms.Consumption generally decreases and abstention rates increase in later life.Recent declines in alcohol consumption appear to be attributable to reduced consumption and increased abstinence rates among the most recent birth cohorts, especially males, and general increased rates of abstention across the study period.

Age, period and birth cohort effects as odds ratio (OR) for men and women from logistic models predicting alcohol abstention. Reference groups are the 45–50-year age group, the 2005–09 period and the 1960–64 birth cohort. Dotted lines represent estimated 95% confidence intervals
