From: Quantifying spatial accessibility in public health practice and research: an application to on-premise alcohol outlets, United States, 2013

Measures Binge drinking

ORa (95% CI)
Population-weighted accessibility
Driving distance 1.13 (1.11,1.15) 1.16 (1.13,1.19)
Driving time 1.13 (1.11,1.15) 1.16 (1.13,1.19)
Euclidian distance 1.12 (1.10,1.14) 1.15 (1.12,1.17)
Population-weighted distance
Driving distance 1.11 (1.09,1.14) 1.15 (1.12,1.19)
Driving time 1.10 (1.08,1.13) 1.14 (1.11,1.18)
Euclidian distance 1.01 (1.00,1.02) 1.02 (1.00,1.03)
  1. aThe ORs were based on an interquartile range scale (the absolute difference between first and third quartiles), which means the odds increase for risky drinking behaviors when the county-level on-premise alcohol outlet access increases from first quartile to third quartile
