Abstract:

Traditional methods of anonymous reporting garners vital data about otherwise sensitive information such as risky drinking behavior. However, anonymous reporting does not allow longitudinal tracking. The use of self-generated identification codes SGIC may be useful in addressing this limitation. Researchers could use SGIC with military populations to infer the changes of individual alcohol use pre and post-deployment without participants limiting their disclosures due to fear of self-incrimination.
