Off-site outlets and alcohol-related harm
The primary aim of this research project is to improve understanding of the relationship between off-site outlet density and alcohol-related harm in Australia. It is anticipated that the project will:
- determine the most appropriate means of measuring the strength and nature of the relationship between off-site outlets and violent assault in two Australian jurisdictions
- identify the most effective way of using this information to predict the likely impact on the Australian community (and where possible on vulnerable populations, including Indigenous Australians and young people) to changes in outlet density taking regional characteristics into account.
