Alcohol policy modelling and evaluation

Abstract

Alcohol policies are government interventions that aim to minimise the health and social harm arising from the use of alcohol, which in England alone costs between #17.7bn and #25.1bn every year. Controlling alcoholic affordability and availability are amongst the most effective policy options available to governments. These policies can be unpopular with consumers and industry, so it is important that decisions are based on sound evidence about the expected costs and benefits. If policies come into force, it is important that we test if expected effects really occur. Our aim is to lead a step-change in capability to predicting and testing the effects of policies. With policy stakeholders and international advisors, we identified priority work areas where work is most urgently needed and bring together alcohol policy researchers, and experts in combining evidence, policy appraisal, industrial economics, health economics and public health information to undertake the research. We plan to
1. Collect and analyse data and perform evidence reviews in areas where new evidence is critical to inform policy effectiveness research: (a) how the alcohol market responds to policies; (b) how changes in binge drinking relate to changes in illness and crime; (c) how people?s drinking varies over time; (d) how long it takes for policy changes to have an effect on drinking and harm; and (e) what role the socio-political situation (eg. current recession) plays in influencing whether a policy works.
2. Building a computer-based tool that can predict the likely effects of current and possible future options for alcohol taxation and retail licensing (key policy areas discussed in the UK) ? e.g. the health and social impact of higher taxes for extra strength alcohol or returning closing time to 11pm.
3. Methodological work so that this tool can place the policy in the real-world context of recent and long-term changes to alcohol prices, income, drinking and harm.
4. Using the evolving tool to analyse real policy options as the work develops: many methodological advances in recent alcohol policy appraisal have come about because ?an answer was needed now?. We will write annual reports and will work closely with policy makers and, where appropriate, the media, to ensure that our research is able to inform policy debates.

Technical Summary

The aim for this research programme is to lead a step-change in capabilities for robust scientific appraisal of new and existing alcohol policy interventions. Controlling alcoholic affordability and availability are amongst the most effective policy options available to governments. These policies can be unpopular with consumers and industry, so it is imperative that decisions are based on sound evidence. However, important knowledge gaps remain and with policy stakeholders and international advisors, we identified priority areas for scientific advance.
1. New evidence to inform policy appraisal: We propose data acquisition, data analysis and evidence synthesis in areas where new evidence is critical: (a) Market response to pricing policy; (b) Relationship between heavy episodic drinking and harms in different settings; (c) Variability in individuals? consumption patterns over time; (d) Time lag between policy, consumption and harm changes; and (e) Socio-political context effects that may moderate policy effectiveness.
2. Building of a model that considers taxation and availability policy options: Taxes are the only price-based interventions currently operating in most Western economies. The health and social impact of a range of taxation options (eg. the current ?duty escalator?; differential taxation by alcoholic strength) will be appraised. Similarly, we will appraise availability policies, which remain almost unexamined due to lack of integrated data on outlet opening hours and density.
3. Building a dynamic model: Current models are static, assuming a ?stay steady? baseline level of consumption and harms, rather than dynamic i.e. accounting for trends over time. We propose a major model revision to account for recent and long-term underlying trends in alcohol prices, income, consumption and harm.
4. Policy evaluation/model validation: Many methodological advances in our recent modelling have come about because ?an answer was needed? to real policy options. We propose to incorporate a 3 year programme of policy appraisal that is responsive to emerging stakeholder needs. We will produce annual reports on evidence synthesis, model developments, validations and policy appraisals, to enable researchers and UK and international policy stakeholders to view and use developing work.
A systematic comparison of model predictions with real changes in consumption/harm will also be undertaken. We bring together UK and international alcohol policy researchers, and experts in evidence synthesis, policy modelling, industrial economics, health economics and public health information and expect that our work programme will lead to major advances in evidence-based alcohol policy decision making. Strong links with stakeholders have been established to facilitate exploitation.

Description Legal challenges to Scottish Government minimum unit pricing policy
Geographic Reach Europe 
Policy Influence Type Citation in other policy documents
Impact In a Scottish Court of Session judgement assessing the Scottish Government's legal capacity to implement a minimum unit pricing for alcohol, the judge noted a) our evidence supporting the likelihood of the policy achieving the Government's stated aims, b) our evidence that the policy was a proportionate and targeted public health measure and c) that a rebuttal to statistical critiques of our evidence, authored by our researchers, was sufficient to show that industry-funded critiques presented to the court lacked sufficient weight or substance to have influenced parliamentarians decisions. This judgement was subsequently over-turned and referred to the European Court of Justice where a ruling in December 2015 stated, informed by our evidence on the potential effectiveness of the policy, that MUP would be legal if it achieved greater benefits to public health than alternative options and fewer impacts on free trade than existing policy options - particularly increasing alcohol taxes. The case was referred back to the Scottish courts where our evidence again played a crucial rule in determining the relative effectiveness of alcohol taxes and MUP. The case has currently been appealed to the UK Supreme Court where our evidence is again playing an important role.

Title Age/period/cohort modelling of alcohol consumption 
Description This research addressed how alcohol consumption changes across age and cohort groups and across time. Although the research methods used to conduct this analysis were not new, their application to modelling alcohol consumption behaviour over time within population groups is new and it is this we recognise as a new research method. 
Type Of Material Model of mechanisms or symptoms - human

Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact A research paper has been published in a leading journal. The paper was also presented at an international conference. A poster presentation of the work at a further international conference was highly commended. 
 
Title Effects of observation period of alcohol price elasticity estimates 
Description Alcohol price elasticities (and those for other products) are often estimated using data recording individuals/households' purchases of alcohol over a given time period. However, there are concerns that the use of short observation periods (e.g. purchases over one week) may bias findings leading to higher elasticity estimates. Using a novel household panel dataset where some households remained panel members for several years, we were able to analyse how estimates of alcohol price elasticities varied when we restricted the data to different lengths of observation period. As data available for estimating alcohol price elasticities often has many limitations and short observation periods, this analysis substantially increases our understanding of the degree of bias embedded within elasticities estimated from different data sources. 
Type Of Material Model of mechanisms or symptoms - human 
Provided To Others? No  
Impact A paper is awaiting revisions following peer review with a leading academic journal. The paper was also awarded a shared prize for best paper by an early career researcher at an international conference. 
 
Title Improving consumption estimates in population surveys 
Description Methods were developed to add missing and under-represented survey populations to survey datasets on UK alcohol consumption and then to further adjust reported alcohol consumption to take account of a range of biases. This leads to a reduction in the extent of under-reporting of alcohol consumption in survey estimates. 
Type Of Material Model of mechanisms or symptoms - human 
Year Produced 2011 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact A paper has been published in a leading journal. When combined with pre-existing methods, this permits more accurate estimation of the effects of alcohol policies as we are better able to account for the alcohol which we know to be consumed in the UK from sales and HMRC revenue data. These estimates were included in a report to the Scottish Government in 2012. 
 
Title Meta-model of screening and brief intervention effectiveness 
Description We adapted the Sheffield Alcohol Policy Model screening and brief intervention appraisal tool to multiple countries. We then constructed a meta-model which allows estimation of costs and effects of screening and brief intervention policies in a wider set of countries than those which have model adaptations. This is achieved by estimating model outputs from a reduced set of model inputs. This avoids the resource-intensive process of constructing a full model adaptation for a given new country.

Title Methodological development of the Sheffield Alcohol Policy Model version 3 
Description A range of developments have been made to the Sheffield Alcohol Policy Model. These include: Theoretical development to the Sheffield Alcohol Policy Model to make the model more robust, flexible and efficient. Methodological developments to enable modelling of policy impacts on further key population subgroups, in particular income and socioeconomic groups, and also more robust model results based on new data analyses. Policy appraisal developments to enable modelling of further policy options including direct modelling of alcohol taxation policies. 
Type Of Material Model of mechanisms or symptoms - human 
Year Produced 2011 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact Improve the utility of the Sheffield Alcohol Policy to our various users by offering a broader range of policy appraisal options, better flexibility, more robust results and faster model runs. 
 
Title Modelling of alcohol taxation policy effectiveness 
Description Methods have been developed to extend our appraisals of minimum unit pricing for alcohol and allow appraisal of alcohol taxation policies. This incorporates innovative analyses of the pass-through of alcohol tax increases to prices as described separately. 
Type Of Material Model of mechanisms or symptoms - human

Title New analyses of alcohol price elasticities in the UK 
Description Econometric data analysis techniques were applied to pooled cross-sectional data, longitudinal data and repeat cross-sectional data transformed into a psuedo-panel. This was done to develop a new matrix of alcohol price elasticities for the UK. Although these techniques are not new; to our knowledge, their application in this way to alcohol spending data in the UK is new and developing an elasticity matrix through analysis of multiple different forms of data is also new. 
Type Of Material Model of mechanisms or symptoms - human 
Year Produced 2013 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact A paper has been published in a leading journal. The resulting elasticity matrix underpins new appraisals of the effectiveness of alcohol pricing policies. These will be feed into the on-going policy debates around minimum pricing in England and Scotland. 
 
Title New analyses of alcohol tax pass through 
Description We aimed to investigate the extent to which alcohol tax increases lead to increases in the price of alcoholic drinks with a particular focus on how this might vary for products at different price points. A quantile regression approach was used to analyse product-level time series data on alcohol prices. This is the first time this method has been used to address this question and it provides a substantially more detailed understanding of how retailers' implement a key alcohol policy. 
Type Of Material Model of mechanisms or symptoms - human 
Year Produced 2014 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact A paper has been published in a leading journal. The work will also be submitted for presentation at academic and stakeholder conferences. The results will also be used in work, requested by the Scottish and UK Governments, modelling the effects of alcohol tax increases and comparing these effects to those of minimum unit pricing. This comparison is important as the relative effectiveness of these policies is a key consideration in debates around the legality of minimum unit pricing. 
 
Title New binge model in the Sheffield Alcohol Policy Model 
Description Data from an additional dataset was analysed to estimate binge drinking behaviour within our core dataset. A new approach was also developed to model binge drinking risks based on estimated blood alcohol content rather than simply reported alcohol consumption. New approaches to taking account of drinking patterns alongisde risks from total alcohol consumption were also developed. 
Type Of Material Model of mechanisms or symptoms - human 
Year Produced 2011 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact A paper was published in a leading journal. A second paper is being prepared for publication. Improve our ability to model the impact of alcohol policies on binge drinking and, subsequently, how changes in binge drinking affect rates of alcohol-related harm. This is a key concern of policy makers. 
 
Title New measures of alcohol availability 
Description To analyse the relationship between the availability of alcohol outlets in an area and alcohol consumption in that area, we developed new measures which describe the number and distribution of alcohol outlets in relation to UK postcodes. In particular we developed new measures of the clustering of outlets which have not previously been used in the large alcohol availability literature. 
Type Of Material Model of mechanisms or symptoms - human 
Provided To Others? No  
Impact A research paper is being prepared for submission to a leading journal. The analyses will also be used to develop an adaptation of the Sheffield Alcohol Policy Model which can appraise the impact of a policy-induced change in levels or patterns of alcohol availability on alcohol consumption, spending, health and crime harms and the costs associated with those harms.

PI Contribution The Sheffield team contributed intellectual input into the ongoing strategic planning of the IFS's research to ensure outputs were of use to our modelling work and were able to speak to the interests of alcohol policy makers and the wider alcohol research community. Sheffield also manages the project of which this collaboration is one part.
Collaborator Contribution Collaboration has enhanced our understanding of alcohol price elasticities and has informed our development of methods for estimating a new set of price elasticities which are key parameters within our alcohol policy model.
Impact Two journal articles have been submitted reporting 1) new elasticity estimates based on an innovative pseudo-panel analysis and 2) analyses of how elasticities may be biased by the time period over which household purchasing behaviour is recorded. The over-arching output is a revised set of alcohol price elasticities which are key input parameters underpinning a range of policy appraisal analyses we are conducting using the Sheffield Alcohol Policy Model. (see Research Materials) This is a multidisciplinary collaboration involving economists, health economists and public health researchers.

PI Contribution Our research team lead for University of Sheffield on the alcohol stream within SPHR. We will use our expertise in policy analysis and modelling the effects of alcohol policies, our model of alcohol policy effectiveness (the Sheffield Alcohol Policy Model), as well as our access to various datasets, to progress an innovative programme of alcohol-related research which is a school-wide collaboration. We will also explore opportunities to use the outputs of our alcohol policy modelling within the School's other research themes including those addressing diabetes, obesity, youth behaviour and smoking.

PI Contribution Sheffield has analysed UEA and Loughborough's novel longitudinal dataset on supermarket prices and this has allowed us to enhance our understanding of how retailers respond to alcohol pricing policies (e.g. whether and how tax rises are passed on to consumers). In future this collaboration will lead to a tax pass-through module which will be incorporated into our alcohol policy model. Sheffield also manages the project of which the collaboration is one part.
Collaborator Contribution UEA and Loughborough have collected a longitudinal dataset on supermarket prices of different alcohol products which they have provided for analysis. They have also provided methodological input on analytical approaches and decisions.
Impact A paper reporting on the results of the analysis has been published in a leading journal (DOI: 10.1111/add.12590). This describes how alcohol taxes are passed through to consumers, in particular examining whether taxes are passed through to a greater or lesser degree for cheaper or more expensive products. The analysis uses an innovative quantile regression approach which is a new advance in this area. (see Research Materials) The results will be used to model the effect of alcohol taxation policies in the UK and the results are likely to have substantial impact on the national and international policy debate (see Influence on Policy). This is a multi-disciplinary collaboration. In addition to Sheffield's team of public health and health economics researchers, external collaborators are business researchers.

PI Contribution We will work to substantially extend the Sheffield Alcohol Policy Model to include tobacco policies, behaviours and outcomes. A key development will be to establish a joint behaviours model to explore the effect of a policy directed at one behaviour (e.g. alcohol) on the other (e.g. smoking).
Collaborator Contribution The UKCTAS aims to deliver an international research and policy development portfolio, and build capacity in tobacco and alcohol research. UKCTAS work will include developing strategies for behaviour change in tobacco and alcohol use, assessing risks, identifying measures to reduce harm, monitoring the tobacco & alcohol industries, and developing effective public policies to improve public health and wellbeing. UKCTAS is a research centre that includes 13 University teams working on tobacco and alcohol research. 12 of these teams are based in the UK at the following Universities (Bath, Bristol, Edinburgh, Kings College, Liverpool, Nottingham, Oxford, Queen Mary, Sheffield, Stirling, University College London, York) and one in New Zealand (Massey University). The centre is one of 6 UK Centres for Public Health Excellence and is funded by the UK Clinical Research Collaboration. Researchers within the Centre come from a range of academic disciplines from clinical medicine to social policy. They conduct work on tobacco and alcohol use throughout the lifecourse with a particular focus on informing policies and interventions to reduce the harms from both these products.
Impact Public Health Centre of Excellence and funded through a Centre Grant (see Further Funding) This is a multidisciplinary collaboration and the disciplines involved are: public health, social psychology, biological psychology, health promotion, political science, health policy, experimental psychology, gastroenterology, respiratory medicine, epidemiology, statistics, health services research, clinical psychology, bioethics, economics, social policy and social marketing.

A key development will be to establish a joint behaviours model to explore the effect of a policy directed at one behaviour (e.g. alcohol) on the other (e.g. smoking).
Collaborator Contribution The UKCTAS aims to deliver an international research and policy development portfolio, and build capacity in tobacco and alcohol research. UKCTAS work will include developing strategies for behaviour change in tobacco and alcohol use, assessing risks, identifying measures to reduce harm, monitoring the tobacco & alcohol industries, and developing effective public policies to improve public health and wellbeing. UKCTAS is a research centre that includes 13 University teams working on tobacco and alcohol research. 12 of these teams are based in the UK at the following Universities (Bath, Bristol, Edinburgh, Kings College, Liverpool, Nottingham, Oxford, Queen Mary, Sheffield, Stirling, University College London, York) and one in New Zealand (Massey University). The centre is one of 6 UK Centres for Public Health Excellence and is funded by the UK Clinical Research Collaboration. Researchers within the Centre come from a range of academic disciplines from clinical medicine to social policy. They conduct work on tobacco and alcohol use throughout the lifecourse with a particular focus on informing policies and interventions to reduce the harms from both these products.
Impact Public Health Centre of Excellence and funded through a Centre Grant (see Further Funding) This is a multidisciplinary collaboration and the disciplines involved are: public health, social psychology, biological psychology, health promotion, political science, health policy, experimental psychology, gastroenterology, respiratory medicine, epidemiology, statistics, health services research, clinical psychology, bioethics, economics, social policy and social marketing.
