The Alcohol Action Network (AAN) developed the “Alcohol CAP” Tool so that volunteers in any state could document what happens during out-of-store alcohol purchases. The tool is an online form, easily completed by volunteers using a smartphone, laptop, or desktop computer. There are 20 simple questions that check for problems during an alcohol purchase. For example: Was an alcohol delivery left at a door with no contact? Was ID checked? Were “drinks to go” in appropriate containers? Were curbside pickup or take-out drinks placed near a driver? Volunteers can also submit stories and photos.
The Alcohol Action Network created state fact sheets containing data on alcohol-related harms. The fact sheets are available to Alcohol Action Network members only.
The Alcohol Action Network hosts alcohol policy experts who deliver short presentations on various alcohol policy topics. Recordings of these webinars are available to Alcohol Action Network members only.
This tool presents examples from four states to help evaluators and other data collectors improve sample representativeness and survey response rates when gathering primary data.
The goal of alcohol environmental scanning is to identify your community’s risk factors that can contribute to underage or excessive alcohol consumption. Conducting a scan allows you to observe and document the 4 P’s: Price, Product, Promotion, and Place. Documenting these observations and pairing that information with other assessment data, such as youth survey data, allows you to create a clear picture of alcohol in your community. This resource provides guiding questions for conducting environmental scans using the 4 Ps.
This fact sheet discusses the goals of using POLD data, why they are important, considerations for policies, and tips and suggestions for implementing.

This toolkit was developed to help community organizations, state alcohol policy alliances, and substance use prevention coalitions identify, locate, and use data to support the implementation of alcohol policy campaigns.
This toolkit, developed in partnership with the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists, provides steps for using several alcohol outlet density indicators for surveillance in states and local jurisdictions. It is a companion to the CDC Guide for Measuring Alcohol Outlet Density.
This guide discusses the importance of measuring alcohol outlet density and different approaches for doing so, along with their pros and cons.
