Alcohol outlet density and related harm

  • Research program: Alcohol policy and strategies
  • Project status: Completed
  • Start date: February 2006
  • Expected end date: January 2007
  • Completion date: August 2010
  • Funded by: National Drug Law Enforcement Research Fund
  • Lead organisation:

This is a first stage feasibility project. Project aims to progress the development of an Australian model sensitive to local risk factors to help authorities to determine the appropriate liquor outlet density to minimise alcohol-related harm for a community. The project will develop a framework that identifies the type and stages of research necessary to create the model.
