Interested in learning about alcohol policy? New Resource Released by the CDC: Guide to Measuring Alcohol Outlet Density

A new resource was just released by the CDC called the "Guide for Measuring Alcohol Outlet Density."  The Regulation of Alcohol Outlet Density is an evidence-based strategy through The Community Guide to decrease excessive alcohol consumption.  If local data shows that excessive drinking is a problem in your community, you may want to consider measuring alcohol outlet density.  For more CDC alcohol resources on research in action, visit this website.

Have questions about this evidence-based strategy or need measurement support? Contact Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment's Alcohol Epidemiologist, Kacy Crawford at kacy.crawford@state.co.us.
