It was explained that in 2004 the male death rate, which was at 17.7 per 100,000, was twice that for women, with more than two-thirds of the total number of deaths, being in men. It was also mentioned that in 1991, the levels were 9.1 per 100,000 for men, and 5.0 per 100,000 for women.

The statistics have showed that the death rates in men of all ages has increased between 1991 and 2004, with the highest levels seen in those aged 35 to 54. It was seen that in 2004 the middle-aged men had a death rate over three times that for men aged 15-34, which was almost twice the rate for men aged 55-74, and two and a half times the rate for men aged over 75.

The ONS statistics had showed that the figures for women of all ages were consistently lower than those seen in men, and also added that the trends showed a broadly similar pattern in age. It was explained that the figures were based on a new harmonised definition of alcohol-related deaths recently agreed across the UK.
