Alcohol - first ever hospital admission aged under 75 years
- The level of absolute inequality has fallen since 2007, while relative inequality has remained stable over the same period.
Between 2007 and 2010 rates of new hospital admissions for alcohol-related conditions among those aged under 75 years fell by 20% to around 11,200 new cases in 2010. These types of admissions are more common in deprived areas - 464 per 100,000 population compared to 96 per 100,000 population in areas of low deprivation. Relative inequality has remained broadly stable over time. There has been a decrease in absolute inequality since 2007, mainly caused by a decrease in the admission rate in the most deprived decile from 583 per 100,000 population (in 2007) to 464 per 100,000 population (in 2010).
