​This report presents statistics and recent trends of alcohol use in Jersey in 2016.

This report is the latest in a series of reports which examines the effect of alcohol on Islanders’ health. It covers topics such as drinking habits and behaviours among adults (aged 16 or over) and school children (aged 11 to 15), drinking-related ill health and mortality, pricing of alcohol, alcohol-specific hospital admissions and alcohol-related prices and expenditure. The report contains both previously published information and new analyses.

The latest report shows that in 2016 an average of 12 litres of pure alcohol was consumed per person aged 15 or over. The level of consumption is similar to that reported for 2014 and 2015. Over the period 2014 to 2016, there were 39 alcohol-related deaths (Office for National Statistics definition), representing 2 per cent of all deaths in Jersey. The most common alcohol-related death was alcoholic liver disease, accounting for two-thirds (64 per cent) of alcohol-related deaths during this period. The report also shows that between June 2000 and June 2017 the price of alcohol increased at a higher rate than retail prices generally (17 per cent greater).

A number of States of Jersey Departments have provided data for this report, including the Health and Social Services Department, Social Security Department and the States of Jersey Police.
