A new study published in Alcoholism Clinical & Experimental Research reveals that the amount of alcohol-related deaths in the United States has increased between 1999 and 2017.
The study examined death certificates of people 16+ between 1999 and 2017 across the United States. Researchers categorized the deaths to be alcohol-related if the death certificate included “an alcohol-induced cause.”
The data revealed that between 1999 and 2017, the number of alcohol-related deaths increased by 50.9% and that a total of almost 1M alcohol-related deaths were reported during the timeframe.
