Density of liquor licences linked to domestic violence in NSW study

Researchers have identified a "tipping point" linking rapid rises in the rate of domestic violence to the number of liquor outlets in an area.

A study by the New South Wales Bureau of Crime Statistics shows the frequency of domestic assaults jumps rapidly in local government areas where there are more than two hotels per 1,000 residents.The statewide research also found that non-domestic assaults "increased markedly" in such areas, while violence was also linked to the number of other liquor outlets such as clubs.
