CDC Researchers Find Association Between Domestic Violence And Number Of Alcohol Sales Outlets

HealthDay (12/11, Preidt) reports on a review of 16 studies by researchers at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, published in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs, finding that “restricting the number of locations where alcohol can be sold in a community may help reduce domestic violence.” The study considered “the number of alcohol sales outlets, hours of days of alcohol sales, and alcohol pricing/taxes,” but only the number of outlets had a consistent association with “higher rates of domestic violence.”
