    PETOGODIŠNJA KUMULATIVNA INCIDENCIJA KONZUMACIJE ALKOHOLA U ODRASLOJ POPULACIJI U HRVATSKOJ: CroHort STUDIJA ----- Konzumacija alkohola tradicionalno je dio većine kultura, a tek je pojavom industrijske revolucije prepoznat kao zdravstveni i socijalni problem. Cilj ovog rada je bio istražiti spolne i dobne razlike u kumulativnoj incidenciji konzumacije alkohola u Hrvatskoj. Podaci su dobiveni iz Hrvatske zdravstvene ankete provedene 2003 te pnovljene 2008 godine, a uzorak je činila kohorta od 3229 ispitanika. Pitanja o konzumaciji alkohola komprimirana su u dvije varijable koje opisuju prisutnost ili odsutnost rizičnog ponašanja pretjerane konzumacije alkohola. Rezultati su pokazali da je incidencija rizičnog konzumiranja alkohola veća u muškaraca nego žena i da je najviša u dobnoj skupini između 35 i 65 godina. Uslijed nekih limitirajućih faktora same studije moguće je da su rezultati podcjenjeni. Problem rizičnog konzumiranja alkohola je alarmantan pogotovo u žena. Da bi bili uspješni, potrebno je kulturne, regionalne kao i razlike u vrsti alkohola koji se kozumira uzeti u ubzir pri formiranju programa zdravstvene edukacije.

    English abstract

    Alcohol consumption is traditionally part of most human cultures, and with the onset of industrial revolution it was recognized as a health and social problem. The aim of this article is to investigate cumulative incidence of alcohol consumption in Croatia. Data were obtained from the Croatian Adult health Survey in 2003 followed by 2008. The cohort consisted of 3229 participants. Questions regarding alcohol consumption were calculated into two factors describing existence or non-existence of risk behavior. Results revealed higher incidence of risk alcohol consumption in man than in women and highest in the 35-65, age group. Due to the some study limitations results might be underestimated. Present problem of alcohol is alarming, even more so, in women's population it might be only the tip of the iceberg. Cultural and regional differences should be taken into account when educational programs are constructed, especially due to the different type of alcohol consumed.
