The article is comparing self-reported data on experiences of harm from heavy drinking by family and friends in five Nordic countries using data from recently conducted general population surveys. The Nordic countries are appropriate to compare in this context as they share important population, geographical, and welfare characteristics but have significant differences in drinking levels and alcohol-related mortality.
