This study was conducted to investigate the health behaviors and disease prevalence associated with high-risk drinking among Korean women and conduct risk factor analysis of highrisk drinking.
The 2012 Korea Community Health Survey (KCHS) was used to sample 59,522 adult women aged 19~64 age who had at least one drink during the previous one year. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-tests, Chi-squared tests, and logistic regression.
The results revealed that 19~44 year old, unmarried women - who had graduated high school were high as high-risk drinking. Moreover, smoking, depression and stress were many. Finally, multiple logistic analysis showed that age, marital status, education level, smoking and obesity were significantly related to high-risk drinking.
When investigating factors influencing high-risk drinking, it is important to develop appropriate health promotion programs for women who exhibit high-risk drinking behavior. The results of this study will be useful to development of such programs.
