This project will field a US telephone survey to study the types and seriousness of harms experienced due to someone else’s drinking (also known as externalities or second-hand effects of drinking).
Broad goals are to (a) test a model of harms from others’ drinking; (b) understand how impact of such harms is affected by gender, race/ethnicity and other demographic characteristics of both perpetrators and victims; and (c) examine how environmental and policy factors potentiate or mitigate harms. The research will inform prevention planning and generate findings relevant for development of evidence-informed alcohol policies
