NDARC researcher Wing See Yuen and other co-authors have had an article published in Addiction on age, period and cohort effects on alcohol-related risky behaviours in Australia from 2001 to 2016.

The researchers used an age-period-cohort analysis of repeated cross-sectional survey data from the Australian National Drug Strategy Household Survey to examine trends in the prevalence of any alcohol-related risky behaviour and to compare the trends between men and women.

While the researchers found that alcohol-related risky behaviour in Australia generally has declined since 2001, risky behaviour remains most prevalent in young adults, and the male–female gap in risky behaviour is closing for more recent birth cohorts.
