Alcohol-related data collection for harm-reduction purposes at the local level : a review of New Zealand data and action recommendations

11 Jan 2003

ALAC Visiting Research Fellow, Dr Harold Holder's report defining a local alcohol information system for the prevention of harm. The report does so by identifying a basic set of alcohol-related harm indicators and the ideal standard of collection associated with such indicators.

It then assesses how such indicators might be practically developed utilising existing data and identifying potential data needs, that might be addressed in the future. All are aimed at enabling community alcohol-related harm indicators to be developed in support of local decision making and planning to prevent harms.
