Are there gender effects in the relation between alcohol consumption and self-assessed health?

The aim of the present study is to compare, for Belgium, in 2001 and 2004, the association linking alcohol consumption (frequency and amount) and self-assessed health for males and females after adjusting for age, education, income, physical and mental health, self-efficacy, social support. We assume that the association will be different between males and females, though this topic has rarely been examined in the literature.
