Identification of subgroups of alcohol users and related factors in the São Paulo Metropolitan Area: gender differences, sociodemographic characteristics and psychiatric comorbidities

Abstract

Alcohol use and related disorders greatly contribute for death and morbidity rates in Brazil. Due to the importance of this public health issue and the scarcity of epidemiological studies in our country, the present research proposal aims to further extend the knowledge on alcohol use and related factors in a representative sample of adult household residents in the São Paulo Metropolitan Area, based on data from the São Paulo Megacity Mental Health Survey. This survey, which was supported by FAPESP as a thematic project, is the Brazilian counterpart of the World Mental Health Survey (WMHS) Initiative, which is coordinated by the World Health Organization (WHO) and has been carried out in 24 countries. This project aims to investigate, based on data analyses from the São Paulo Megacity Mental Health Survey: (i) the prevalence and sociodemographic correlates of lifetime alcohol use, regular use, abuse and dependence, (ii) drinking patterns, preferences for types of beverages and their relationships with alcohol-related problems; (iii) the different classes of alcohol users based on alcohol abuse and dependence symptoms and the factors that may be associated with these classes. This kind of study may contribute to the calculation of risks associated with alcohol use, potentially being a Brazilian reference for WHO Global Burden of Diseases 2012 - as it has been recently occurred in the WHO Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health 2011. We hope the results of this project may help to improve alcohol consumption research, prevention and health care and guide public policies for intervention and prevention programs. (AU)
