a. Received alcohol treatment at a specialty facility refers to treatment received at a hospital (inpatient), a rehabilitation facility (inpatient or outpatient), or mental health center in order to reduce or stop alcohol use, or for medical problems associated with alcohol use. Respondents were classified as needing treatment for an alcohol problem if they met at least one of three criteria during the past year: (1) were dependent on alcohol; (2) abused alcohol; or (3) received treatment for alcohol use at a specialty facility.

b. Estimates are based on a revised definition of poverty that incorporates information on family income, size, and composition and is calculated as a percentage of the U.S. Census Bureau's poverty thresholds. Negative/poor refers to family incomes below the Federal poverty line; near poor/low, the poverty line to just below 200 percent of the poverty line; middle, 200 percent to just below 400 percent of the poverty line; and high, 400 percent of the poverty line and over. Respondents with unknown poverty information or under age 18 were excluded.

c. Metropolitan refers to all metropolitan areas: Large central and fringe metro, central and suburban counties in metro area of 1 million or more population; Medium metro, counties in metro area of 250,000 to less than 1,000,000; Small metro, counties in metro area of less than 250,000 population; Nonmetropolitan, all nonmetropolitan areas.
