Industry with the highest alcoholism: Hospitality

15% of hospitality workers and 14.7% of construction and mining workers in the United States have problems with alcohol. The report from George Washington University Medical Center uses 2006 data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health and the National Comorbidity Survey to gauge the effects of alcohol dependence and abuse in 13 industry sectors.

It suggests the key ingredients for alcohol problems in an industry are young people and men - which make up larger than average proportions of the hospitality and construction industries, respectively.
