Description:
General Summary This study reviews the Irish experience over the last 20 years in regard to alcohol consumption, alcohol-related problems and policies towards alcohol.· The growth of alcoh~1 consumption over the 1960s and 1970S has been very rapid and due both to increasing consumption per drinker and a higher percentage of drinkers in the population: By international standards, however, consumption is not exceptionally high in Ireland, although the. proportion of income spent on drinking is very high. As consumption has grown so too have some of the widely used indices of alcohol-related problems, notably hospital admissions for alcoholism, arrests for drunkenness and road accidents occurring around pub-closing time. On the other hand, the death rate for liver cirrhosis does not yet reflect the effects or higher consumption to any great extent.
