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
