Alcohol consumption in Estonia and Finland

Donnerstag 20. Mai 2010 von htm

Finbalt survey 1994-2006. Background:
Alcohol consumption has been regarded as an important contributor to the high premature mortality rates. The objective of this paper was to provide an overview and comparison of alcohol consumption and its socio-demographic determinants among adults in Estonia and Finland.
The study was based on a 25-64-year-old subsample of nationally representative postal cross-sectional surveys conducted in Estonia (n=10,340) and Finland (n=19,672) during 1994-2006. Abstinence, frequency, and the amount of alcohol consumed were examined. Logistic regression models were used to test the socio-demographic differences in alcohol consumption at least once a week. The effect of socio-demographic factors on pure alcohol consumed per week was calculated using linear regression.
Alcohol consumption has increased in Estonia and Finland. National alcohol policies should reflect findings of alcohol epidemiology in order to introduce measures that will reduce alcohol related harm in the population effectively.

First decrease in alcohol consumption in Estonia since 2001

Freitag 5. Juni 2009 von htm

The Estonian Institute of Economic Research published its annual report on alcohol consumption in May. According to their research, Estonians drank 11,9 litres of pure alcohol per capita in 2008. In 2007 – 12,6. That was the first decrease since 2001. This 5,3% decrease can be credited to some important alcohol policy changes that were introduced in 2008. During 2008, alcohol taxes were raised by 30% (20% in January 2008 and an additional 10% in July 2008). From August 2008, alcohol retail sale was banned during night time from 22:00. From 1 November 2008 alcohol advertising on TV was only permitted after 21:00 (previously alcohol ads were aired from 20:00). (Source: Eurocare Newsletter April/May 09)
