  • A substantial shift downward in the meaning of drunkenness occurred in the US between 1979 and 2000. Study is focuses on the meaning of drunkenness and the social demographic and regulatory forces that appear to influence it, as well as on its relationship with alcohol consumption measures. Reflects a significant change in american drinking culture toward more moderate expectations regarding intoxication. Despite a decline in average alcohol intake and heavy drinking days, more subjects reported being drunk in the past year and being so more often in the laer 2 surveys. There seems to be a lag in the socal constructions of what it means to be drunk as related to normative aggregate sonsumtion.
