Compares the sensitivity, specificity, and positive predictive value of three measures of excessive drinking. Participants' (N=197) responses indicate that the positive predictive values for the Quantity-Frequency Index (QFI) exceeded those for the binge index. The index produced the highest sensitivity rating, but overestimated the number of problem drinkers. (RJM)
