Longitudinal changes in self-reported alcohol consumption by mothers’ during the COVID-19 pandemic
Alcohol and Alcoholism
Previous research shows that drinking by mothers was higher during the initial stages of the pandemic. Less is known about whether these drinking levels were maintained years after the first stay-at-home orders. Using three waves of data, each approximately a year apart, drinks per day remain elevated, whereas drinking frequency and continued volume have decreased during subsequent waves.
