PLACES provides community estimates of health measures, including binge drinking, for all counties, places (incorporated and census designated places), census tracts, and ZIP Code Tabulation Areas across the United States.

This CDC website allows adults to anonymously check their drinking, identify barriers and motivators for drinking less, and print or save a personalized change plan. This evidence-based tool is a free resource that can be used by individuals or institutions to reduce excessive alcohol use.

The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends increasing alcohol taxes to reduce excessive alcohol consumption and related harms. However, questions have been raised about the potential impact of alcohol tax increases on the cost of alcohol and employment. This web tool models how much extra adults who drink would pay for alcohol following various hypothetical state alcohol tax increases based on how much they drink, income, and employment status, as well as the effect these hypothetical tax increases would be expected to have on state employment.
