I read an article recently that presented a table on "Percentage of US adults reporting >1 consumption of alcohol by race" after adjusting for sociodemographics including sex, education, martial status, and income in a multivariate logistic regression.  I understand you can present percentages of individuals who either had "consumed" or "not consumed" in a bivariate analysis.  But how do you do that AFTER running a logistic regression (or multinomial regression) adjusting for multiple covariates?

Below is a section from the table:

Non Hispanic Whites: 23% +/- 2 SEM
Non-Hispanic Blacks: 22% +/- 2 SEM
Mexican Americans: 21% +/- 1 SEM
