Description

Lemmens , Knibbe and Tan(1988) described a study of self reported alcohol frequencies. The no of alcohol consumption data in two reference weeks is separately self reported by a randomly selected sample of 399 respondents in the Netherlands in 1983. Number of days a given individual consumes alcohol out of 7 days a week can be treated as a binomial variable. The collection of all such variables from all respondents would be defined as "Binomial Outcome Data".
