The rate of harmful and hazardous alcohol consumption at the point of first contact with health care is esti-mated with help of AUDIT questionnaire and consumption recall diaries. The correction for imperfect diagnosticinformation is made. Highest prevalence of harmful and hazardous consumption is found among males visitingdermatologists, lowest-among young female students. After correction for imperfect information prevalence wasestimated to be 45,9% (95% CI = 43,1-48,7%). It is shown that there are four different consumption groupsamong respondents — reasonable consumers, persons that consumed harmful and hazardous amounts in thepast, persons that continue hazardous consumption and those with harmful continuing consumption. The needfor preventive measures in primary care is stressed.
