Abstract

Most published research utilises an AUDIT score of >8 as the threshold for hazardous drinking. Recent research suggests that this limit should be amended for younger drinkers (aged 18-35 years). Applying Foxcroft et al’s (2015) suggested cut off scores of 9 for males and 4 for females to the most recent Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey (2007) data more than doubles the prevalence of female hazardous drinkers, and significantly increases the overall rate for that age group when compared to the standard threshold of >8
