The Alcohol-Related Disease Impact Application (ARDI) is an online software developed by the CDC for state epidemiologists. ARDI allows epidemiologists to track and calculate alcohol attributable morbidity and mortality, years of potential life lost due to alcohol, and the subsequent direct/indirect health costs for their individual state. ARDI also captures the demographic variables age and gender.
Data can be aggregated by specific age groupings
Current Data Format
Online interface on the ARDI website, https://nccd.cdc.gov/DPH_ARDI/default/default.aspx. Can also download Excel sheets of the data.
