From PIRE's Prevention Research Center: "Statewide Availability Data System II: 1933 - 2003"
The Prevention Research Center of the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation has created multiple databases under an NIAAA grant. These databases are collectively referred to as the "Statewide Availability Data System II: 1933 - 2003." This data system is an archive of State-level panel data on availability, sales, and self-reported use of alcoholic beverages, as well as on rates of morbidity and mortality associated with alcohol use.
The data system includes 60 data tables, 435 unique columns and nearly 500,000 data cells. It covers the 50 States and the District of Columbia over time periods ranging, as noted, from 1933 - 2003. For details about this Data System click here.
Use of these data are available without charge by permission of the developers. Prior to releasing any data, however, PIRE does request that users sign and forward the following agreement. Click here for Data Request Form.
NIH Program Announcements for Research Studies Using APIS
On August 8, 2007, the Department of Health and Human Services issued a series of three Program Announcements. All are entitled Research on Alcohol-Related Public Policies such as Those Detailed in the Alcohol Policy Information System.
These funding opportunities, which will be administered through the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), solicit grant applications on the effects of alcohol-related public policies on health-related behaviors and outcomes.
All relevant information for these announcements (PA-07-427, PA-07-428, PA-07-429) can be found at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-07-427.html, http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-07-428.html, and http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-07-429.html.
A Source of Data to Measure the Outcomes of Policy Change
THE ALCOHOL EPIDEMIOLOGIC DATA DIRECTORY
The Alcohol Epidemiologic Data Directory provides a current listing of surveys and other relevant data, much of which is suitable for outcome research on alcohol policies. Most data sets described in this document are national in scope. In some cases, however, select specialized data sets may be included. Information on the availability of and access to the data sets is provided.
