Alkoholpolitik und Volksgesundheit

Socioeconomic deprivation, urban-rural location and alcohol-related mortality in England and Wales

Freitag 26. Februar 2010 von htm

Many causes of death are directly attributable to the toxic effects of alcohol and deaths from these causes are increasing in the United Kingdom. The aim of this study was to investigate variation in alcohol-related mortality in relation to socioeconomic deprivation, urban-rural location and age within a national context.
Large inequalities in alcohol-related mortality exist between sub-groups of the population in England and Wales. These should be considered when designing public health policies to reduce alcohol-related harm.
