Previous research has shown that high risk drinking occurs frequently in Victoria.
This study involves the establishment and maintenance of a prospective cohort of 800 young Victorians and following them up over time to determine changes in drinking patterns along with harms emanating from the behaviour.
Recruitment will occur through telephone interviews and participants will be followed up annually for a period of two years.
Findings will be integrated with ethnographic and agent-based modelling arms of the study being conducted by collaborating institutions.
