National Alcohol Survey (NAS)

Categorized Under: Business Process Operations + Optimization, Health, Surveys



ICF conducts this recurring (every 5 years), nationally representative, cross-sectional, phone-based survey that seeks to understand several key factors related to alcohol use, such as expenditures for alcohol, alcohol-use disorders and disabilities, alcohol-attributed and non-attributed health conditions, and numerous cognitive and attitudinal variables.

In support of this research, ICF conducted more than 7,000 interviews, which included large oversamples of African American and Hispanic individuals, including 1,000 cell phone interviews to better access younger adults, who engage in riskier drinking behaviors. With opportunity from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Challenge Grant Program, additional studies have been planned to supplement the NAS data, including follow-up surveys and web assessments.
