Abstract

Building on previous research related to alcohol outlet density and its impact on injury, this study examines whether alcohol consumption mediates the association between alcohol outlet density and traumatic injury. Data were analyzed based on Nielsen consumption variables along with injury data for census tracts in the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Mediation analysis showed that there was no significant indirect effect of consumption as a mediator, although Pearson regression analysis showed that there was a significant association between on premise alcohol density, consumption of alcohol, and alcohol related traumatic injury. This study shows public health significance as it suggests an alternative mechanism leading to alcohol related traumatic injury so that prevention can be focused on limiting alcohol consumption instead of establishments that sell alcohol.
