Harms associated with alcohol consumption in the context of public holidays and social events were explored in terms of general patterns, gender patterns and age patterns.

A range of alcohol-related harms were considered, including acute intoxication requiring medical attention, assaults, and motor vehicle accidents. The use of time series analysis allows exploration of the levels of harms associated with specific events after controlling for the impact of seasonal and temporal variations in alcohol-related harms.
