Supplementary notes

The National Statistics definition of alcohol-related deaths only includes those causes regarded as being most directly due to alcohol consumption. It does not include other diseases where alcohol has been shown to have some causal relationship, such as cancers of the mouth, esophagus and liver. The definition includes all deaths from chronic liver disease and cirrhosis (excluding biliary cirrhosis), even when alcohol is not specifically mentioned on the death certificate. Apart from deaths due to poisoning with alcohol (accidental, intentional or undetermined), this definition excludes any other external causes of death, such as road traffic and other accidents. The definition allows for consistent comparisons over time for those deaths most clearly associated with alcohol consumption.
Rates per 100,000 population standardised to the 1976 European Standard Population.
Including non-residents.
Figures for 2002 to 2010 have been revised in light of the 2011 Census populations.
Rates are not calculated where there are less than 10 deaths in the United Kingdom.
