Prevalence and Predictors of Alcohol Risk Behaviours


To get a more accurate understanding of the health risks associated with alcohol consumption amongst the ALSWH’s 1989-95 cohort, a set of questions examining the risk behaviours that occurred because of alcohol consumption were devised and used in the 2015 survey of this cohort. The questions asked about the frequency of pre-drinking, vomiting, forgetting things, self-injury and seeking medical attention because of drinking. This project will examine the following; the prevalence and predictors of these alcohol risk behaviours; how these behaviours relate to self-reported alcohol intake and binge drinking frequency; the role of pre-drinking in alcohol related risk behaviours and injury; and how alcohol risk behaviours relate to changes in alcohol consumption patterns as women move from their teens to their 20’s.
