Abstract

There are so many approaches to the diagnostic, classification and outcome predictor problems of the disease complex known as alcoholism that it is virtually impossible to determine the true significance of any variable cluster without the aid of computer analysis. The problem is made all the more difficult when comparative transcultural studies are contemplated and these points have already been emphasized at this Meeting by Professor Hudolin. One method, however, of reducing variable influence is to study selected populations with a major common feature. The study reported illustrates the personal and occupational aspects of a highly selective group of alcoholics.
