The statistics also highlight the relationship between binge drinking, physical health, and educational attainment.
In terms of physical health, 78.7% of adults in Tennessee report good physical health, which is slightly below the national average of 82.5%.
Additionally, the data shows that 27.5% of adults in Tennessee have graduated college, slightly lower than the national average of 32.6%. These figures suggest a potential correlation between lower educational attainment and binge drinking rates, which may have implications for health outcomes.
Examining employment demographics reveals an interesting pattern too. In Tennessee, 35.7% of adults work in management and business jobs, slightly lower than the national average of 38.6%.
While it is challenging to establish a direct relationship between employment and binge drinking, this statistic offers insights into the occupational distribution among individuals who engage in excessive alcohol consumption. Further research could explore how occupational factors intersect with binge drinking rates and their impact on public health.
