The Australian arm of the International Alcohol Control Policy Evaluation Study (IAC) involves a large-scale survey of drinking in Australia, with a particular focus on collecting data from heavy drinkers. The project will collect data on drinking, alcohol purchasing, policy attitudes, consumption on heavy drinking occasions, and a range of other relevant issues. Respondents will be reinterviewed to assess changes in these behaviours over time. The study will provide data not previously available in Australia that can be used to better inform alcohol policy by: 1) assessing the impact of any policy changes on drinking, purchasing and harm, 2) estimating the impact of alcohol price on sub-groups of Australian drinkers and 3) measuring stability and change in heavy drinking behaviour over time.
