We produced these estimates in a manner that allowed us to hold constant potentially confounding variables such as a history of alcoholism or other psychiatric disorders, unemployment status, being divorced or separated, and so on. The panic attack estimate in Table 4 shows that cocaine use signalled increased risk of panic attack.
