1. Aging well with alcohol? Harnessing longitudinal data from 20 countries to understand health impacts of moderate drinking among older adults

Policy makers and practitioners need evidence-based guidelines to counsel patients on the healthy use of alcohol in older age, including subpopulations for which even small amounts of alcohol may adversely influence health. Understanding how policies, laws, and socio-cultural context around alcohol affect the relationship between consumption and health will allow for appropriate public health regulations and prevention efforts across countries aiming to improve and extend the lives of older adults. To achieve these goals, this project will merge and harmonize massive amounts of existing data to create a new longitudinal, multilevel dataset including 187,256 individuals repeatedly observed in 22 countries across an average of 6 years.
