ObjectivesThis study investigated, among the Dutch working population, whether job loss during the post-2008 economic crisis is associated with harmful drinking and whether this association is stronger than before the crisis.

MethodsRepeated cross-sectional data from the Dutch Health Interview Survey 2004–2013 were used to define episodic drinking ≥6 glasses on 1 day ≥1-week and chronic drinking ≥14 glasses-week for women and ≥21 for men. These data were linked to longitudinal data from tax registries, to measure the experience and duration of job loss during a 5-year working history.

ResultsBefore the crisis, job loss experience and duration were not associated with harmful drinking. During the crisis, job loss for more than 6 months was associated with episodic drinking OR 1.40 95% CI 1.01; 1.94, while current job loss was associated with chronic drinking OR 1.43 95% CI 1.03; 1.98. These associations were most clear in men and different between the pre-crisis and crisis period p interaction = 0.023 and 0.035, respectively.

ConclusionsThe results suggest that economic crises strengthen the potential impact of job loss on harmful drinking, predominately among men.
