The Alcohol Policy Information System (APIS) provides user-searchable access to authoritative, detailed, and comparable information on alcohol-related policies in the United States, at both State and Federal levels.  Designed primarily as a tool for researchers, APIS is intended to encourage and facilitate research on the effects and effectiveness of alcohol-related policies.
 
The alcohol-related topics covered by APIS are drawn from the Alcohol Policy Classification System.  Thirty-five specific policies falling under the following policy topic areas have been researched and are currently posted in the APIS Policy Topics section of the APIS Web site:
 
  • Alcoholic beverage control
  • Taxation and pricing
  • Transportation, crime, and public safety 
  • Health care services and financing
  • Alcohol and pregnancy
