  • Extracting data from a range of sources (see below for more detail)
  • Using the analyses from various data sources to update the 99 FAQs in the Alcohol Section
  • Re-designing all the graphs in the Alcohol Section by including infographics to create a more user-friendly and interactive experience for people accessing the website
