AIMS

The European Centre is involved in Workpackage 3, “Investigating the cultural, social and demographic determinants of alcohol consumption changes and alcohol policy”. Researchers from 12 European countries participate in the workpackage and they agreed to collect predefined quantitative and qualitative data in three areas from 1960 to 2005:

  1. data on alcohol consumption and alcohol related problems,
  2. data on alcohol policy – so-called planned determinants – and
  3. data on unplanned determinants, i.e. factors that are supposed to change consumption patterns but that did not come into effect intentionally for this purpose.

The data is used for country reports as well as for cross-country comparisons identifiying the weight of selected determinants and of determinant clusters for national consumption changes and changes in alcohol-related harm.
