Abstract [en]

This study aimed to describe changes in Swedish alcohol habits during a period of "harmonization" with European Union alcohol policy. Three random samples collected during the years 1997 (n = 997), 2001 (n = 893) and 2005 (n = 914) were compared. Alcohol habits and hazardous consumption was measured with the AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test) distributed to the respondents by post. Results were somewhat diverse, but significant changes in alcohol habits occurred among two subgroups of the population: for women and the age group between 28 and 60 years, AUDIT scores peaked in 2001. The results are discussed in relation to the changes made in Swedish alcohol policy during the investigation period.
