This study is part of a large ongoing survey of preventive and screening practices in Greece, which is organized by the PACMeR (PanHellenic Association for Continual Medical Research). For this project, PACMeR physicians employed data derived from trial questionnaires. A sample of 5499 Hellenic individuals (2948 female, 2551 male, and age range 21–97) entered the study and answered the questionnaires during a face-to-face interview. Safety data storing was assured by SESy_Europe Database, a 3-component database dedicated to population-based cross-sectional surveys on prevention and screening activities. Alcohol consumption data were therefore abstracted from the database and analyzed. X2 test, likelihood ratio x2 test and Mantel-Haenszel test were used for statistical analysis.
