Alcohol - deaths aged 45-74 years
- Inequalities have fluctuated both in absolute and relative terms over time but there has been a slight reduction in the latest year.
Between 1998 and 2006, there was a 24% increase in rates of alcohol-related deaths among those aged under 45-74 years. Since 2006 rates of premature alcohol-related deaths have fallen again and, in 2009, was 0.5% lower than the rate in 1998. The 2009 alcohol-related death rate among those aged 45-74 years of 85.2 per 100,000 equates to around 1,600 deaths per year in this age group dying from alcohol related conditions. There are more alcohol related deaths amongst those aged 45-74 years in deprived areas than in areas of low deprivation. In 2009, the rate in the most deprived decile was almost ten times higher than the least deprived decile (232 per 100,000 population compared to a rate of 26 per 100,000 population in the least deprived decile). Both absolute and relative inequalities have shown some fluctuation from one year to the next.
