Description

I have a query about the self-report values for alcohol consumption on heaviest drinking day in the self-report adult wave 2 data. Presumably the questions across four types of alcohol drinks are intended to provide an estimate of the number of each types of drinks (and in combination the total alcohol consumption) on a single occasion identifies as the highest intake inthe last 7 days. When I look at these variables, they have a very large range - for example pint consumption ranges from 0 pints to 780 pints.
Is there any possibility of this being an error in input across all 4 types; or is there something potentially incorrect in my reading of the item; or are these values as reported in the survey, and if so is there any directions from the project team as to how to interpret or work with this data.
Many thanks
Kareena
