1  A crash is considered as alcohol-related if either a driver or a nonoccupant (pedestrian or pedalcyclist) had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.01 g/dl or greater. When alcohol tests were not done or test results are unknown, imputed BAC data provided by NHTSA are used.

2  Calculations excluded decedents with unknown age or sex.

3  Number of YPLL per 100,000 population under age 75.

4  Number of alcohol-related YPLL expressed as a percentage of total YPLL.
