Dear User,
Our website has a search where you can search by survey characteristics. I selected "completed surveys" and selected "survey characteristics". Once there I clicked on alcohol consumption. I then clicked on the search button which appears at the bottom. This will give you the surveys where questions on "alcohol consumption" were asked. Usually in your analysis you would need to select for standard recode variables and country specific variables to identify all the different variables for your analysis. I am attaching a apreadsheet which shows you the questions which were asked in each of the completed surveys regarding this topic. The specifc questions asked can be found by hovering over the comments. This amount of detail normally does not exist for every survey characteristic or every survey, but I happen to have it for alcohol consumption. In the standard recode file, country specific variables will start with the letter S and follow the questionnaire numbering. For example: If you had a country specific variable which came from a specific country survey questionnaire (as an example) Q535 then in the recode file, it would be called S535. Standard recode variables for the woman are:
V835A Alcohol consumption at last sex with most recent partner
in the domestic violence section
You would need to find similar recode variables for the men. These would start with M and follow the same naming convention.
