War of Alcohol Stats

Interesting piece from the Institute of Alcohol Studies about whether the right number of people are being counted in the hospital and alcohol admission statistics.

The question seems to be whether by counting those where alcohol is a secondary factor in their admission we end up with an exaggerated sense of the problem that alcohol is causing, or if they’re excluded we end up missing the contribution that alcohol is making to the health problems of the nation.
