Audit of a sample of alcohol outlets in Glasgow

Summary

This project was conducted in collaboration with Anne Ellaway and Laura MacDonald of the MRC Public Health Sciences Unit at the University of Glasgow. This built on a previous collaboration examining the spatial distribution of alcohol outlets in Glasgow, and used digital photography to make a visual record of the exterior of each off-sales premises in the city during one week in October 2009, shortly after the provisions of the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 came into force. These data are currently being analysed in preparation for further follow-up research.
