Alcohol and Pregnancy Policy Study
ANSIRH is working collaboratively with the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation (PIRE) and the Alcohol Research Group (ARG) to assess intended and unintended effects of state-level policies targeting alcohol use during pregnancy and whether effects vary by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status (SES). This study will use data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, Natality Birth Data, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism’s (NIAAA) Alcohol Policy Information System, and other policy data sources in its analysis. Findings from this study will be used to inform ongoing policy debates as well as advocacy and professional education efforts by maternal and child health professionals and obstetricians and gynecologists.
Please note that this is an NIH-funded study, 1R01AA023267.
