The alcohol availability literature indicates that under some conditions, physical availability is positively associated with per capita alcohol consumption.
Smart (1980) suggested that at the individual level, subjective and social aspects of availability may mediate and outweigh the influence of physical availability.
The study described here examined the simultaneous effects of physical, subjective, and social availability on alcohol consumption.
Standardized telephone interviews were conducted with 781 adult drinkers.
As hypothesized, physical availability was not a significant multivariate predictor of alcohol consumption for residents of high, medium, and low alcohol outlet density counties in Michigan (USA).
