To understand alcohol’s harm to others, research is needed measuring and analysing harms like family violence and traffic injuries which are managed in response systems, as well as harms which occur in the general population, and economic costs for the society as a whole. Findings in these different study frames should be compared substantively to point to opportunities for intervention and to response system reforms. Population surveys of alcohol’s harm to others provide one view of the problems, and are crucial, alongside other methodological approaches, to understanding this significant area of social and public health problems.
