  1. Note. Figures represent exponentiated coefficients. The full sample was analyzed for current alcohol use, whereas only current alcohol users were considered for the two other outcomes. Reference categories were 70–74 years old for age; one resident for household size; good, very good, or excellent for self-rated health; and Wave 1 for wave. Male × 3+ educ. × T3 inc. is the interaction between gender and SES (3 or more years of education and income in the third tertile). CI confidence interval, OR odds ratio, SE standard error
