Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS)
Alcohol and Crime: Data from 2002 to 2008

A residence or home was the most common location of alcohol-involved violent incidents known to law enforcement regardless of the day of the week

  • While a residence or home was the most common location for both alcohol-involved and other violent incidents known to law enforcement, the proportion is larger in alcohol-involved incidents overall and each day of the week.
  • The percentage of incidents occurring in a bar, nightclub, or restuarant was much higher on the weekends for alcohol-involved incidents than other violent incidents.
