A longitudinal study of influences on alcohol consumption and related harm in Central Australia, with a particular emphasis on the role of price
This project is being conducted by staff from the National Drug Research Institute and the Central Australian Aboriginal Congress. The aim of the project is to examine, and prepare a report upon, the association between price-related controls on the availability of alcohol, and levels of consumption and related harm in Central Australia for the period 2000-2010.
The specific objectives of the project are to:
- describe long-term trends in alcohol consumption in Central Australia
- describe long-term trends in key indicators of alcohol-related harm
- describe key interventions aimed at reducing alcohol-related harm between 1999-2009 and the dates of their implementation
- using time-series analyses, identify any changes in consumption and indicators of harm and to test whether, or to what extent, these can be attributed to particular interventions or combinations of them
- report on the implications for alcohol policy and strategies to reduce alcohol-related harm.
