Order code: OP 190

This book presents data from the Multicentric Study on Gender, Alcohol, Culture and Harm, which highlights alcohol consumption profiles and alcohol-related predictors and outcomes for 10 countries in 2005: Argentina, Belize, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay and USA. Data from Argentina, Canada, Costa Rica, Mexico, Uruguay and USA were previously collected as part of the international study on Gender, Alcohol and Culture (GENACIS). New data using comparable indicators were collected from Belize, Brazil, Nicaragua and Peru. Wide differences were seen in volume of alcohol consumption and heavy episodic drinking between countries, even those classified in the same WHO sub region. This new survey data highlight the importance of disaggregating sub regional WHO data to the country level in order to see differences in consumption and corresponding risk of alcohol –attributable outcomes at the country level and thus inform country-specific alcohol policies capable of addressing the specific alcohol consumption profiles and problems.

The integrated data allows for within and between-country comparisons based on the 5 main objectives of this study:

    1. Comparisons of men’s and women’s drinking patterns within countries, and comparisons of drinking patterns among women and among men, and gender differences in drinking patterns, across countries. :
    2. Comparisons of men’s and women’s prevalence of alcohol-related problems within countries, and comparisons of the prevalence of alcohol-related problems among women and among men, and gender differences in problem prevalence, across countries. :
    3. Comparisons of individual-level predictors of men’s and women’s alcohol consumption and alcohol-related problems, within countries and across countries. :
    4. Analyses of societal-level predictors of women’s and men’s alcohol consumption and alcohol-related problems. :
    5. Improvement of gender-sensitive measurement of alcohol consumption and alcohol-related problems.
