‘The Range and Magnitude of Alcohol’s Harm to Others’, or ‘Harm to Others Study’ (HTO Study) for short, is an Australian study conducted collaboratively with researchers in New Zealand. The project studied the effects of alcohol on people other than the drinker using survey, registry and qualitative interview methodologies. The study commenced in 2008. This paper describes the methodologies as well as discusses some of the challenges in measuring alcohol’s harm to others. The HTO Study is the first comprehensive study of alcohol’s harm to others. The project has contributed a different perspective to the measurement of alcohol-related harms and contributed to policy discussions.
