Alcohol deaths in Ireland and Northern Ireland – an aid to interpretation
Ireland map in people

The Institute has published a new technical resource – Alcohol deaths in Ireland and Northern Ireland: an aid to interpretation – to inform policy on this issue. 

The technical resource aims to support individuals and organisations who are interpreting data on alcohol-related deaths on the island. Following a UK wide consultation in 2017, ‘alcohol-specific deaths’ is the definition now used in Northern Ireland, whereas ‘alcohol-related deaths’ is used In Ireland. 

The resource lists the specific medical conditions included within each definition and reports how alcohol deaths are recorded.
