  1. Class descriptions for men: class 1 (healthiest), class 2 (healthy abstainers), class 3 (some health risk behaviours but physically active), class 4 (low risk drinkers but other health risk behaviours), class 5 (highest health risk behaviours). Class descriptions for women: class 1 (healthiest), class 2 (healthy abstainers), class 3 (moderate health risk behaviours), class 4 (low risk drinkers but other health risk behaviours), class 5 (highest health risk behaviours). Class proportions are weighted (using class probability weights)
