Social inequalities in alcohol-related adult mortality by National Statistics Socio-economic Classification, England and Wales, 2001-03

Record type: Article

This article is the first analysis of the social inequalities in adult alcohol-related mortality rates in England and Wales for the period 2001-03, using the National Statistics Socio-economic Classification (NS-SEC). It presents the socio-economic patterns of alcohol-related mortality by sex, age and region, for England and Wales. Death registrations were used to provide counts of deaths by the NS-SEC classification, using the National Statistics definition of alcohol-related mortality for working age adults. Population estimates by age, sex and NS-SEC were obtained from previously published estimates based on the 2001 Census. The resultant mortality rates were used to analyse variations in alcohol-related mortality by socio-economic status. Alcohol-related mortality rates were substantially greater for the less advantaged NS-SEC classes, especially among the younger of the age groups studied
