In their 2007 update of the review of studies on the AUDIT, Reinert and Allen  concluded that AUDIT is not valid among older age groups due to low sensitivity.They suggested a lower cut-off score indicating hazardous drinking and alcohol problems in higher ages.Motivations included loneliness, "fun" and boredom, while 9% admitted being "dared" to do it.
The aim was to evaluate the internal consistency reliability and construct validity of the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) in elderly Swedish adults, and to compare the results with the general Swedish population.
Another aim was to calculate the level of alcohol consumption (AUDIT-C) to be used for comparison in future studies.
In these four population studies 1997–2009 we estimated the data quality in terms of reliability (Cronbach alpha) and covariance structure (explorative principal axis factoring).
However, there is no study of the psychometric performance of AUDIT on the ages among adults over 71 year in Sweden.
below are some ways to block mobile phone spam, also known as SMS spam or m-spam.
They're not perfect, but they might hold you over until spam-blocking technology catches up with mobile phones.A writer for business organisation ICAEW commented that text roulette is a modern variation on an old pattern, i.e.young people finding ways to irritate adults by doing what is forbidden, but raises concerns about child safety.In an early form of the game in 2007, he encouraged listeners to send "I love you" messages to a contact at random.In the last episode of Series 3 of Channel 4 sitcom The Inbetweeners, the four main characters play Text Roulette with each other's phones.One implication of these difficulties is that any survey assessing drinking habits among the elderly should be relatively simple and short.
