Measuring success

Some example measures of success, and tools to measure the success of community participation in liquor licensing are provided below. You may find these a useful starting point for measuring the success of your community action.

Process measures • number/type of community organisations engaged
• number of partners involved with a liquor licence objection
• number of meetings held with partners
• number of community events
• level/quality of local media coverage
• evidence collected to support a liquor licence objection (e.g. local community profile)
• number of liquor licence objections submitted.
Impact/outcome measures • increased awareness of alcohol harms
• increased awareness of liquor licensing process in the community and among partners
• stronger connections between partners
• impact on liquor licence applications (e.g. licence refused, conditions put in place, etc.)
• impact on liquor outlet density
• reduction in alcohol harms.
Tools to measure success • document analysis (e.g. meeting minutes, submissions from community members and partners, etc.)
• partnerships analysis
• liquor outlet density data
• trading hours exemptions lists
• focus groups
• interviews.
