Health Impact Assessment of Alcohol Outlet Density in Mendocino County

The number of alcohol outlets per community (outlet density) is an indicator of readily available alcohol to the public and an indicator of overall alcohol consumption. The Public Health Prevention & Planning Unit looked at the relationship between the number of outlets and four measures of crime and harm. The evidence shows that a high density of outlets corresponds with a proportional increase in alcohol related violence, underage drinking, unprotected sex and driving after drinking. The number of alcohol outlets in Mendocino County per capita is over twice the average in the State of California. However, there are many steps communities can take to reduce the harms associated with high alcohol outlet density. Success stories from other communities can help lead the way to implement tools and policies at the local level.
