This study aims to determine the strength of a variety of sociodemographic risk factors for being a victim of alcohol related violence. In particular, it examines the hypothesis that places where alcohol is usually consumed, times of absences from the home, and the frequency of such absences are more important factors in the likelihood of experiencing alcohol related violence than being young and male.
